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!

Nice Fitting Shirt

My muslin was tight in the shoulders. It turned out I needed the full bicep sleeve and a forward shoulder adjustment. I also lengthened the shirt by 1" as I am 5'9. My shirt fits well and is comfortable. It's so nice to have a button front that fits in the chest and doesn't pull on the buttons. I used a stretch cotton woven fabric.

I also bought the shirtmaking course and followed along. The course is great! (I'm an instructional designer and this really is a good course). I learned a lot.

Great classic shirt pattern

This is the first shirt I have ever made and I am so pleased with it. I love that it has such a great range of cup sizes so I didn't have to mess around doing a FBA. I did struggle with understanding how to attach the button placket at the bottom but I'm not sure if it was the instructions weren't clear or that I just wasn't reading them properly, but luckily I made a toile first so it was a good opportunity to learn using a practice piece rather than the final article. I have already bought two more pieces of fabric to make more.

Gorgeous collar

A well fitting shirt and elegant look. The collar sits beautifully! I did find the sleeve plackets a little fiddly and would have preferred that the pattern had the point cut out rather than me having to fiddle with it so much and cut away excess fabric bulk. Otherwise a gorgeous pattern and will make again.

This Shirt Makes Me Feel Amazing

I adore this pattern. It fits so well and I've received a lot of compliments. The pattern instructions are clear and easy to read as well!
