Great pattern!
Reviewer: Dave

I love this pattern, and if my wife likes the dress when I give it to her for her birthday, I'll make her many more.

Reviewer: Melanie

I really love the Zina pattern for its classic design and beauty. It's easy to sew and comes together beautifully. I'll be back to buy more patterns and of course, more linen!

Easy straightforward pattern.
Reviewer: Aubrey

Came together easily i wish i would've had enough fabric for the dress version. Next time maybe.

Highly recommend
Reviewer: Dana

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.

New favorite pattern
Reviewer: Kathy

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...

Shirt dress at last.
Reviewer: Jessica

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

I made this for my wife, but it's for her birthday so she hasn't seen it yet. I really, really hope she likes it.

The Nico dress layered with the Zina shirt. I LOVE the way it turned out, but I too had some sizing issues. BUT what I LOVE about your patterns is the attention to detail and the use of quality sewing techniques like hiding seams and the way cuffs & collars are applied. I haven't used these techniques since college tailoring classes. I know my garments will last a LONG time which is critical to me as I have started a NO CLOTHES buying campaign about a year ago. With the help of the FS team I'm sure everyone can make this pattern fit. I had to add a little to the hips, shorten the top area, but it works!

The ZINA Shirt is so comfortable, versatile and it was an absolute pleasure to sew! Is there anything this wouldn't look cute paired with? Jean shorts, wide-leg trousers, overalls, skirts, as a swim coverup with the sleeves rolled up – we think it is the best new wardrobe addition. Even more amazing, when you make it yourself, you can also customize.

ZINA Shirt Dress made with FS OLIVE BRANCH Midweight Linen I don't know if I can adequately express how much I think everyone reading this needs to make a ZINA Shirt Dress. Maybe that sounds a little dramatic but wow, this was so fun to make and I think you can tell from my photos, how good I feel in this dress. A linen button-up shirt dress might be the best staple wardrobe pieces next to the little black dress and a great fitting jean.

I have always wanted to make a shirt dress but had always been very intimidated to give it a try. The collar and buttonholes were enough to deter me. Having successfully made a few other FS patterns, I felt up to the challenge. The instructions you get with the patterns are unmatched. I felt ready to take on this project. Not to mention it is the perfect time of year to have a linen shirt dress in rotation. To make the Zina shirtdress pattern, I chose the SHADOW GREY linen in 5.3Oz because it's so summery and compliments various tones already in my closet.

Zina shirt in IL019-soft-pink-softened-middle weight linen.

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.
