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 three cup sizes C–H, and double princess seams for a uniquely curve-friendly fit. And there’s no need to compromise on style: the Harrison has 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! Forget about hidden safety pins or awkwardly adjusting your shirt during the day: the Harrison has you stylishly covered.

This Cashmerette pattern includes:

  • Cup sizes from C to H
  • A “full bicep” sleeve option
  • A sizing calculator which will tell you exactly which size to make
  • A beautifully illustrated and detailed instruction booklet, to guide you no matter your sewing level

First try and very happy with the result!

Wow, even though I've been sewing for some years now, I nearly always worked with jerseys or sweat in children's clothing. The Turner dress came out very beautifully, so I really wanted to try this one, using a cheap cotton, albeit with a joyful print. Chose to buy the course as well, as the only cottons I had sewn before were flat ones: a singular quilt, and, well: children's clothing - which to me turned out crucial. I surely wouldn't have pressed and pressed and pressed over and over again. ;D
I definitely was a bit insecure to start this one, and I never expected it to turn out this beautiful! As I'm 1m76 (~3ft9) I chose to lengthen the shirt, but did not know how much I should add to the sleeves. They turned out allright-ish though for a next one, I'd lengthen them a bit too. Hint: A blog on how to determine needed length for the sleeves would be a very nice addition... :D

Which brings me to the only disadvantage of this pattern: If you're very tall or very short, the site of the apex of your bust might not correspond with the apex in the pattern - and I would not know how to adjust this. For me, the discrepancy was too little to cause real problems, and then the ease did some too. However, this, in my opinion, is something one might want to consider if you intend to sew a slim fit.

Highly recommend!

I was so pleased with how this shirt turned out. The only thing I changed in the pattern was taking in the side seam just a tad so that the bottom didn't flare out as much - otherwise the size 18 fit me perfectly. I used a floral linen print for the majority of the shirt, and a pale green linen for a couple accents (bottom of the collar, inside of the cuffs) - turned out great. I'm going to try to make this in a silky/satiny fabric as soon as I feel more confident working with that type of material.

The Harrison Shirt is a winner!

The size calculator helped my pick my best size (range), and the outcome was perfect. The shirt came together so easily, because all the notches matched and the seams lined up beautifully. The instructions were excellent! I have made one shirt so far, but there will be more. Thanks, Cashmerette!

My perfect long sleeved shirt!

I got this as part of the shirt fitting for curves workshop, and I am so glad I did. The cup-sized fronts along with the princess seaming make this just fitted enough, not to baggy,but not so tight that the buttons gap. The biceps option is wonderful as well. The shirt I made with the workshop went together more perfectly than any button shirt I have ever made. Went out and bought flannel, since I have always wanted a nice, feminine shirt in a soft cozy flannel. I wear both shirts constantly. They are the reason I went ahead and sign up for the Club.

Makes an excellent shirt!

The shirt I made is excellent (though I had to make a few adjustments). It fits me perfectly and the lines are great. My only suggestion is that the instructions are a little unclear in some places. I had to read things allowed multiple times to figure out what they were trying to say, but that's usually the problem with written instructions. Maybe more visuals would help. But overall, a very good experience!

Double princess seams fit like a glove!

I made my Harrison Shirt from linen in size 18 G/H and OH My Goodness this is a great fitting shirt for my shape! The double princess seam lines on the front really fit my bust well. I can see a print fabric version in my future and I think will try the Harrison shirtdress as well.
I moved the bust apex down 1" using the Ahead of the Curve book tutorial for princess seams. The cuffs are quite wide but this means you can add two buttons for a feature, I also added a button on the placket. I sewed a line of Cluny lace either side on the button stand for something different.
