Love the Harrison with full bicep

Made 2 Harrison shirts so far with the full sleeve adjustment. So happy to have the free full bicep addition to the Harrison shirt pattern. Both my daughters and I have always had a problem with sleeves in ready wear because of our thick upper arms. Had the same problem with the Harrison shirt Muslim and when I started to investigate how to adjust I was so happy to see an option was already available to fix that. Made the shirt fit perfectly!

Absolutely lovely shirt

What a relief to find a button-down shirt with clean lines for which no FBA is necessary! I made this shirt for the first time in March, and knew straight away I was in for a good build thanks to the straightforward and well-written directions. I will definitely be making this shirt again in different colors & prints!

Good basic pattern

This was my first Cashmerette pattern! I made a practice version for my curvy friend, and while it “technically” fit, I did still have to make quite a few changes. The most significant change was to drop the bust point almost 4”! Nevertheless, this was a brilliant starting point, and I was impressed with the drafting and instructions. It would be excellent for a range of sewing levels.

Love it

I have made three of these tops and I have another one cut out waiting to be sewn. This pattern is great for showing off a special fabric or as something casual.

Gorgeous fit, gorgeous shirt

I love this pattern so much, I've made it three times now. I'm a big fan of button-up shirts, and to deal with the typical bust-button-gaps I got used to either buying oversized or using safety pins, but the Harrison has made that a thing of the past.

I make a 12GH and a 16 sleeve. In other companies' patterns I haven't known myself to have particularly large biceps for my size (though I suppose anything's possible!) but in Cashmerette patterns I always have to size up in the arms, so if you have any doubt definitely double check the arm measurement before you cut and if necessary use the free full bicep extension or grade up.
