Vernon Shirt

from $16

Pattern format

Reclaim the button-up with the Vernon Shirt! This boob-friendly take on the essential button-up shirt features two views: View A is a classic shirt with a traditional collar and collar stand, and full sleeves with narrow cuffs. View B is a fashion-forward version with a dramatic collar, covered button placket, and lantern sleeves with wide cuffs.

From flannel work shirts to posh statement tops, the Vernon can do it all—and with cup sizes from C–H, thoughtfully placed bust darts, and side seam shaping, you’ll get a fabulous fit from collar to hem.

Great pattern

I am more than happy with the fit, it’s really gap-free. It’s my go-to shirt pattern now. The sewing instructions are clear and it’s suitably for sewing with a projector. Thank you!

Great fit, neat finishes

This is the button up pattern I’ve been waiting for! The fit is loose but not baggy and the finishes make for a neat garment. I’ve got at least 2. Ire planned.

Fabulous shirt

Another beautifully designed pattern by Cashmerette. The blocks they use really work for me as they take out most of the frustrations I normally have with other patterns companies and the numerous adjustments I usually have to make.
I made a toile and saw I needed to drop the bust dart and waist line by an inch so I slashed across the top of the pattern, just below the armscye but above the dart to add the inch.
That’s literally the only adjustment I needed to make!
Don’t judge me on the photos… The other half didn’t put enough photographer vibes into it so I had to crop as much as possible to keep my dignity while retaining pics of the shirt!

great shirt, lovely fit, with no adjustments needed. Excellent instructions, only change was bust start to french dart to give a longer line to the shirt, excellent, I love it. Julie
