Another wet weekend project completed! Style Arc's Jane Shirt - it looks like a longer style of shirt according to the photo - does it not?.
Well, I made a Size 10 and followed the pattern exactly - and it's much shorter than I expected ..
Fabric: Superfine SILK from Chic Fabrique Green Paisley
Style Arc offers some great up to the minute stylish designs. I have found their fit to be excellent and their patterns are well drafted. Their instructions are sparse - you're basically left to your own devices apart from a general order of construction. Here are a few things I found ..... interesting ..... The sleeve pattern has a slit, the picture from the pattern clearly shows a placket on the long sleeve. There was no placket pattern, and the instructions say to "neaten split and tuck as noted on the pattern". Here is the pattern piece .... I was disappointed with this .... so I had to hunt down a pattern that had a placket (to save my brain the energy of drafting one from the instructions in a book).
