    Recital Shirt
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 06/12/2018
    I've made button-up shirts before, but Liesl's instructions are by far the BEST I have ever read. Very clear, concise and well-illustrated. A beautiful shirt that I am proud to wear. Can't wait to make more.

    Will become a staple in my pattern collection

    I had previously bought the classic shirt pdf, and was very happy with the clear, detailed instructions and the really nice details in the construction. I've now added the recital shirt to my collection, and made it up in a view B. The pleats were easier than I expected and the shirt is so polished. I want to use view A next. As a relatively new sewist I really appreciate the detailed instructions!

    Great shirt pattern!
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 01/01/2018
    This pattern is fantastic! The shirt looks really professional, it has all the little details that a shirt should have. The instructions are crystal clear. I went on the website for tutorials and parts of the sewalong. It was really helpfull. Even if this is a 3 cisors pattern, you don’t feel it’s so difficult since every step is explained in detail. The fit is perfect and there is enough room to feel comfortable. It’s really important to sew a quick muslin to check the size and the length.

    Fabulous fitted shirt!
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 10/16/2017
    I was so pleased to see this pattern released as it has every little detail that I've been craving for in a shirt pattern. I sewed version A in a size 2 and its perfect. All of the details and instructions make this a pattern that stands out from all other shirt patterns and is certainly going to be used many times by me. Thank you for all of the hard work that's gone into the production of this pattern and your other shirt pattern releases - I love it!
