Mila Shirt PDF Pattern Testing Call

Mila Shirt PDF Pattern Testing Call


The testing call is now closed. Thank you so much for your support! The Mila Shirt is now available in the shop.


Hi ladies, are you up for testing a shirt perfect for the Fall and Winter? Mila Shirt is designed to keep your warm and cozy. Of course you could make it with light-weight fabric if you’d like, but what I had in mind was flannel (especially in plaid). Here are some design inspirations.

I also made the front placket pretty deep for those of you who want a nursing-friendly top.
