The Modern Sewing Co PDF Leila Shirt Sewing Pattern

The Leila shirt sewing pattern by The Modern Sewing Co is a loose fitting shirt that feels simple and elegant.

This cut features a very dropped shoulder with an exaggerated roomy fit around the body, full sleeves with an extra long placket and back gathering details.

It’s the perfect piece to wear in warm weather, giving extra breathability while still being a modest cut. It also layers up beautifully in the winter with warm thermal polo necks.

Sewing pattern description

The Leila shirt sewing pattern by The Modern Sewing Co relies so much on its drape so it’s preferable to choose a particularly special fabric. Combine that with a neat finish, this piece will be a stylish classic to cherish for years.

This cut is designed for summer wearing so it works best in light weight fabrics. We recommend using light cottons such as poplins or muslins, linens, drapey tencel or soft silks. You can choose a fabric with a bit of drape or something that is more crisp, both will work just fine depending on the look you’re going for. Consider the breathability of the fabric you’re choosing as it’s a great piece for
wearing in hot weather

This pattern is drafted for a body height of 5’8″.

Recommended fabrics: Light cottons such as poplins or muslins, linens, drapey Tencels or soft silks.
