Our Lobethal Shirt is a dramatically oversized statement piece with an architectural vibe. It has a minimalist aesthetic with its clean finished neckline and button placket. It features our signature sleeve bands that hit at the elbow and it also has pockets! Small side slits and some subtle topstitched details elevate this easy-to-sew shirt. Make it in a crisp shirting for a dramatic silhouette or select a drapier silk for the most luxurious experience

We would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the Adelaide Hills region, the Peramangk and Kaurna peoples, and pay our respects to Elders past and present.

Cup sizes
Where cup sizes have not been stated it's because the pattern is dart-free and has been designed to be 'cup-size flexible'. If you're unsure about what size to use, you can always email your measurements to for specific sizing advice.

Finished Garment Measurements:

Please select your size based primarily on your bust and hip measurement. Alterations in length can be made using the shorten/lengthen lines.

Fit Expectations: This shirt is designed to have a large amount of design ease.

Muna and Broad patterns are designed with large bodies in mind and we’ve ensured there’s room for you. Because of this, there’s no need to “size up”, but we also don't recommend sizing down to change the intended fit.

Leila has a 50" (127cm) Full Bust and a sewing size D Cup (4" between upper and full bust) I have a 48.5" (123cm) Full Bust and a C Cup (3" difference). The Lobethal is designed with an oversized fit and no bust dart, the shirt will work as-is on a variety of bodies, regardless of cup size and is designed with a 4" difference between the full and upper bust. As always, we do recommend toiling the pattern before cutting in to your 'good' fabric.

Suggested Fabric:

This pattern is designed for use with a wide variety of light-medium weight woven (non-stretch) fabrics. We suggest light-medium weight linen, cotton lawn, cotton poplin/shirting, silk noil, silk satin, sandwashed silk, charmeuse, crepe, crepe de chine, tencel, cupro, viscose/viscose blends, or rayon/rayon blends.

As with most garment sewing, we do not recommend the use of quilting cottons.

Fabric Yardage:
