Excellent pattern

I am an experienced quilter and have made lots of knit garments. This was the first shirt I attempted in a woven. I purchases the video tutorial and it was a fantastic help. My size 14 -graded -to a- 16 in the hips -D cup shirt fits beautifully and I expect to make many more. Highly recommend this pattern.

Cashmerette Harrison Shirt Pattern with Full Bicep Sleeve

I made the pattern as I originally received it, and it was almost an Instant New Favourite, but the sleeves were a little tight. Before making another one, and fortunately, before redrafting the sleeve pattern myself, I read a review of this pattern on the Pattern Review website, and realized the designers had already done this!!! and it was merely a matter of downloading it. Fabulous!!!! I now have a flattering pattern which fit straight out of the envelope, designed for the zaftig figure with muscular arms without having to redesign the usual patterns intended for very thin people with toothpick arms. The double princess seam, which I had worried about, actually split the sewing of inside curves to outside curves into easily managed seams, which made it easy to flatfell them. The only other changes I made were personal preference ones of making the sleeves 3/4 length and finishing the hem with a self fabric bias binding. I had finally found a pattern that I was willing to use for a piece of Liberty Cotton that came home with me from London over 10 years ago. It came out beautifully. Kudos for designing for those of us who don’t fit the tall thin stereotype. Photos is of prototype shirt.

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.
