Shirts for women are the most versatile apparel according to me. Now there are couple of reasons why I am saying female shirt versatile. Firstly it can be worn with any type of ladies pants, next it can be for formal or casual occasion, next is it has endless variety and the list may go on….
There are many stylish shirts for women like long shirt, short shirts, shirts with long sleeves, short sleeves. Even, shirts for girls too has many variety like denim shirts, checked shirts. Office wear for women mostly has shirts and tops.

How To Make A Female Shirt Pattern
To make ladies shirt we will need the following measurements.
The length of the shirt will be as per your choice. I prefer long shirt as it goes with jeans, straight pants, and patiala salwar too. If you wish you can keep the shirt length less too.

You will need 2 meters of fabric. I will be using 15″ readymade collar for the shirt.
