Harrison Shirt PDF pattern

Great blouse pattern!

I made my first muslin with the G/H cup size even though my measurements put me halfway between the C/D cup and the E/F cup because I felt the Concord T shirt by Cashmerette had been a little tight through the bust. Good thing I made the muslin, because it was too big in the bust. I re-cut another muslin in the E/F cup and that was a much better fit. I also did a large bicep adjustment to the sleeve and I didn't sew a cuff. Instead I cut the sleeves at a 3/4 length, and cut a facing to hem them. When I sewed the hem for the sleeve, I made a notch. And finally, because I am 6 feet tall, I added 2 inches length to the bodice (a pretty standard adjustment for me). It is a well drafted pattern and now that I have made adjustments for my figure quirks this will be a TNT. I really like that I don't have to do an FBA. Love my shirt and my DH was very complimentary.

Pretty darn good

This is a well-written and thoughtfully designed pattern.
I was looking for a well-fitting button-down shirt that I wouldn't have to tweak too much and this looked like a good one to try.
I should have paid more attention to the image on the cover as this shirt is not close-fitting through the body, which is a problem I tend to encounter with RTW except that RTW usually is also too big in the shoulders when the bust fits.
I made a muslin, expecting to need to adjust for my sway back, and also ended up taking out fabric around the waist at most of the seams to emphasise the waist.
I'll probably make it again, now that I have my personal modifications down, and I had to change a lot less than I usually do.

Very nice shape, but the arms were very long for me.

I am an confident intermediate sewist and I have made other Cashmerette patterns in the past with success. I had very very long sleeves with this shirt. I shortened them using the cuff, but it looks disproportionate now. I found the length also too long for me. It fits, but I think it is not really flattering. I may try it again and change the sleeves, or make it short sleeved maybe. I am 165cm (5’5”). Honestly, I am puzzled what could have gone wrong, as the rest was fine.
