A high impact shirt for Zoom meetings

A review of Liberty Sewing Patterns Thea Boho Sleeve Shirt

Reviewed by SusanHW on 10th June, 2020

I was SO excited when I discovered that Liberty were launching sewing patterns. And the Thea Boho Sleeve shirt was my favourite pattern of those launched.

The pattern is very clear to work with. Another reviewer noted that it is produced by McCalls, and as a result the markings and instructions are all clear. There are more advanced techniques involved and I was surprised it was classified as a beginner skill level.

Two disappointments: normally sleeves are slightly too long for me on standard “Big Four” patterns, but I found they could have done with being an inch or so longer. I will adjust this for next time. Also, this has clearly been drafted for a very small busted woman. I did a FBA and for my net make will add another dart above the bust because it pulls slightly due to the cut. When you look at the official photo on a small busted model, there is a slight pull even on her.

My fabric was bought at the lovely Fabric Godmother and I can’t wait to start another one. It is a really satisfying project to sew, and as a very experienced sewist, it was a great project to do.
