This shirt was made using the Take Manhattan pattern from Wenlan Chia’s Twinle Sews book. I love the patterns from Chia’s book but the book is not very good at estimating the amount of fabric necessary or the proper size. The book listed my size as a 12 based on my measurements but I ended up using the size 4 pattern. I had the same problem with a skirt I made previously. I also ran out of fabric and used some extra fabric from an old couch cover to line the inside of the pocket. This messed up the drape of the fabric (my bad) so I had to taper the side seams from the bust to about 1.5" in at the bottom of the seam so I didn’t look like a giant triangle.
Anyway, I still love the shirt. I’m in architecture school and make a lot of models so the pockets on this shirt will get a lot of use!
