I made my first Anna Shirt last week and, though I’ve only been sewing for a year and a half, was able to create a lovely Khadi silk blouse. The YouTube video on sewing shirts helped me when I wasn’t sure what to do.
I am very impressed! I have printed only my size and it looks great. Very good instructions on printing! I am ready to sew.
Had to make some office work shirts for my curvy non-binary kido. This pattern has been great. I can print 3 different sizes and adjust as necessary. Then I just use this patern as a base when I make others. Ive also done the camp shirt and the boxy shirt. She is also autistic so I have had to do a french seam on all of it. I've made 3 of this pattern so far, have 3 more to go.
Side note, the boxy shirt doesn't work well for french seams.
As always Wardrobe by Me came up with a great pattern ending in a great classic fitted shirt.
I had to play with only 1 meter of fabric and used some contrast fabric to make my version.
Used green-brown fabric with a flannel structure and black fabric with a cotton structure. Finished the hem with bias tape binding.
Don't be put off making this Anna shirt. Christina Albeck shows in a video how to sew this shirt together. So this shirt is even possible to make for a confident beginner.
Looking forward to make a version with short sleeves for Spring and Summer.
I enjoyed sewing my Anna shirt, and will use the pattern for all my shirts. I found the youtube video helpful.
