Pattern format

Finally, the answer to your prayers: a fitted button-down shirt that doesn't gape over curves! The Harrison Shirt is designed with double princess seams for a uniquely curve-friendly fit and all the features of a classic shirt, including a two-piece collar, yoke, and placket, separate button bands, and buttoned cuffs. This pattern looks equally pretty in crisp Oxford cottons at the office or cozy flannels for playing in the snow!

Harrison shirt

Great fit and design
Easily altered (especially with tutorial)
Good that larger sleeve pattern can be downloaded as often patterns have really tight sleeves

Harrison Shirt

The instructions were flawless. I used a RTW shirt that I like to shorten it a bit to a length I like. The fit is extremely flattering. I have fabric for #2 prewashed and ready to cut out!

Really pleased with my result!

It's hard for us big boobed girls to find sewing pattern that we don't need to adjust. I have previously tried and failed to understand how to do a FBA, so it is good that someone else has already done it with these patterns! In addition to the pdf pattern, I also paid for the video tutorial which was very useful, especially as some of the techniques were new to me.

Finally a shirt that fits

It took years before I could find a pattern for a blouse that would fit my "mature" ahem, curves.
The Harrison pattern was easy to follow, princess seams give a nice tailored look and it works with soooo many fabric patterns. And for once, I have sleeve that fit my upper arms! The cuffs come to where I love a sleeve to end.
The sleeve placket instructions were a bit difficult my first try but 4 shirts later I am a pro.
Love sewing again!

Nice shirt be sure to measure

The shirt was beautiful, but I wish I had done my measurements. I am a size 24 and I made the biggest shirt in the pattern (can't remember the size), and it was too small around my waist. The directions were really good and easy to follow though. Overall, the shirt is really nice though.

Hi Pamela - sorry to hear your Harrison didn't work - as you mentioned, we always recommend measuring yourself and then using our free size calculator to choose your size - just go to cashmerette.com/sizing. Store-bought sizes are often quite different to sewing pattern sizes so it's essential to get a great fit!
