This is the best fitting shirt I have ever owned. The instructions were very clear and it went together smoothly. I have already bought more fabric for my next Harrison Shirt and I’m looking for fabric for a third shirt. I very rarely wear shirts because RTW always has too long sleeves and too tight bust area with gapping at the bustline. I’m so happy I found Cashmerette.
As I usually do, I purchased this pattern because I liked so much about it: it's a classic style, has princess seams which means easier fitting, and so on. Also, as usual, I haven't sewed it yet. I have a long queue and do very little sewing during the holiday season/end of the year. Additionally, I'm on a journey to lose weight permanently for my health, and am not close enough to goal to spend a lot of time and effort on something I will only be able to wear for a very short time. I always have to make a number of adjustments before cutting, and don't wish to have to do that multiple times. I am looking forward now to making a couple other Cashmerette patterns that have a more forgiving fit once I'm into the new year. And that's something I love about PDF patterns that have multiple sizes. As my body changes, I can just print out a new size and move forward; I don't have to purchase another pattern!

Love the pattern, but it’s been a few years since I’ve been able to spend time with a sewing machine. I have only made the pattern as a muslin, but it fits well over the 38DDD’s!
