Comparing to Zina pattern

How is this pattern different from your Zina pattern? Thank you!

Hello, our Zina pattern also includes a dress version, doesn't have the back yoke, and includes more shaping at the waist. Zina also includes pattern pieces and instructions for adding patch pockets to both the dress and the shirt.

The perfect collared shirt

I have been looking for a good pattern to try making a collar and the instructions made this shirt perfect. It fit well and any changes I wanted to make were easy to incorporate. I love this pattern!

Size fitting?

Hello, Could you please tell me if the model is wearing an item without any alteration? And which size? Usually in the specifications you mentioned this aspect, but I didn't see it for this one. Thank you very much and we love your patterns and fabrics :) All the best, Diana

Nice pattern and tutorial for relative beginner

I just started sewing clothes about 6 months ago and thought I'd take on a more difficult project. I made this shirt from the basic softened linen I bought from in a beautiful Sea Breeze color. The tutorials for each different part of the project made it easy to follow along and not feel overwhelmed. The finished project looks really good and fits well although it is a relaxed fit rather than tailored. I love the linen and the pattern together! I might make another one of these for myself or as a gift. I had no problems downloading and printing the pattern with Adobe Acrobat. Once you figure out how PDF patterns work, it's not difficult.

Noa in dove linen with a few adjustments to the fit. I also adjusted the size of the collar and cuffs. The buttons are from the wood of a plum tree and look perfect with the beautiful fabric.

The moonflower linen is beautiful! I made some adjustments to the fit and the size of the collar. The tutorial is great!

This is my go-to shirt pattern! I think I've made 3 of these so far and they fit so nicely. I like to wear mine tied up with a summery dress for a classy alternative to a cardigan for mild or windy weather. This one is made in the IL019 bleached, with the Signature finish which is so so soft! Pictured here with my Mona dress, pattern also by Fabrics-Store.

I chose the Antique White and the Potting Soil Linen, both in a middle weight softened finished. With a few modifications I used the FS Noa Linen Shirt Pattern to create a contrast/colour blocked t-shirt. I was inspired by a similar leather shirt I saw online and thought if I made it in a linen, it would be a staple in my wardrobe, so I brought it to life.

This shirt is amazing. I didn't use linen for my garment because I had this beautiful vintage cotton fabric from my grandma witch I love. I cut the fabric in my size but the end result is oversized, I recommend cutting with 2 sizes smaller for a more fitted shirt. I must admit that having this oversized made me love it even more.
