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

Great Fit

I love everything about this pattern: full bust, full bicep, great instructions. My regular adjustments are lowering the apex and grading out for my hips, and they were fiddly but not hard. My toile is very wearable and I have an excellent pattern for more shirts. Thank you, Jenny.

Looks like the answer I’ve been looking for!

I have not used the Harrison shirt pattern yet. However, as a decades long sewist it looks like it might be an answer to fitting a very large bust on a normal, not plus-sized, frame. My bra size is 36DDDD (42”) and my hips 41”. This difference is compounded by most pattern sizing which is for a B cup and a triangle frame. My shape is generally classified as an inverted triangle even though it is balanced because the common definitions for shapes assume the bust is smaller than the hips. I have used several reference books on fitting over the years and only one has come close to properly addressing my fitting challenge.

The double princess seams on the bodice look to be the game-changer. Too much bias is created in the upper chest when the bust size is increased to the width that I need and the second princess seam provides a possible solution for this issue. I will let you know how it works!
