A few kind words from sewists about the pattern!

I love the essential shirt because I can sew it in less than an hour and it has such nice finishing. It’s perfect as-is but also very customizable! I have painted it, cut into the pattern to color-block it, and I’ve added fun ruffle sleeves. I’ve also lengthened it to a dress and added square patch pockets. It’s a great beginner pattern but even sewing experts will be able to use it as a staple wardrobe pattern! -Katie K

I’d like to holler from the rooftops “I MADE THIS SHIRT!!!!” I am SO proud of myself! I feel powerful and fierce and excited for where this is headed. -Tara N
