This is a fantastic pattern (I bought the hard copy). I am new to sewing (I had never created a cuff or collar), yet I was able to create a beautiful shirt following the excellent instructions. I like the over-sized fit that allows the fabric to drape. I made mine in the soft pink color mid-weight linen.
I love this pattern, I downloaded it a long time ago and now just getting around to making it. I have a question about the under collar. Are you supposed to iron on fusing, it does not show or explain that in the instructions. It shows interfacing for the upper collar but the instructions do not say fuse interfacing to the under collar. To me that would make the collar a little stiff. A little clarification would be great. Again, love love this pattern.
Hi! Thank you for reaching out - I've forwarded your question to the pattern drafter ( we don't get notified when there are new comments here so the best place for sewing questions is via email). She will email you shortly and help you through that sewing step. Her name is Catina and our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org so look for that in your inbox. Have a great evening.
This is my very favorite shirt pattern. I have made it twice so far. I just love it. I made a practice shirt to make sure I had the sizing right and I love that shirt as much as the one I made from linen. You can make it any length. And clearly it lends itself to some experimentation, though I haven't tried anything yet. The only thing I think it lacks is a short sleeve option. I'll probably figure it out for myself, but wish it were just included to save me the time. And maybe the long sleeve just needs to be shortened...
Where do you download the PDF of this pattern? Thanks!
Good afternoon Terri - the Zina Pattern is now available only as a printed pattern. Instead of having to deal with printing it yourself - we print it for you and deliver it ready to be sewn. Plus when you get the printed patterns, you also get complimentary, personal support from the pattern maker herself in case you have any tailoring or adjustment questions. Have a great day
This is a beautiful pattern and so suited for linen. The instructions are detailed and clear. This will be a wardrobe staple. Many thanks for providing such a lovely and free pattern. :-)
Is there anyway to purchase this pattern?
Hi there - not yet, but we are currently working on adding finished printed patterns to our inventory. They should be ready in about a month.
I cannot imagine how much work would go into creating a pattern like this! Thank you for your efforts in developing it and helping folks with downloading and using it. I am able to download and use it without difficulties. And thank you for proving it free of charge!
I have been looking for a shirt dress for ages' I have 3 yards of your beautiful white linen and I cannot wait to make the dress. Thank you so very much
Thank you for this pattern! I have just purchased 5 yards of IL19 and now I know what to make from it! The pictures are wonderful, the instructions are super clear and I know the project will be a success. You have outdone yourselves! This pattern is way way better than any of those produced by the Big 4, or any independent pattern maker. Best of all, you have generously provided it for all of us without charge. Thank you!
Made the Zina from 1C64 Lead Grey and added pewter colored DecoFoil to the pockets. It was my first time sewing a button up shirt and it went great! The instructions are detailed and easy to follow. I had no trouble with the collar, cuffs, curved hem, or any other parts of shirt sewing often billed as difficult. I found the sleeves to be a little loose but they look great rolled up! I opted to add flat felled seams to the entire shirt for a clean finish and traditional shirt look.
