Vernon Shirt


Size Size guide


Pattern format

Reclaim the button-up with the Vernon Shirt! This boob-friendly take on the essential button-up shirt features two views: View A is a classic shirt with a traditional collar and collar stand, and full sleeves with narrow cuffs. View B is a fashion-forward version with a dramatic collar, covered button placket, and lantern sleeves with wide cuffs.

From flannel work shirts to posh statement tops, the Vernon can do it all—and with cup sizes from C–H, thoughtfully placed bust darts, and side seam shaping, you’ll get a fabulous fit from collar to hem.

Catherine Cross
Gorgeous shirt

Made this in an embellished sheer chiffon, which was a challenge to sew but because it was such a great well drafted pattern I had the confidence to stick with it and I'm so glad I did! What a beautiful shirt I made that I think will be a timeless piece. I feel that this would be great made from many different fabrics. Collar sits beautifully and the bell sleeves are stunning

Pattern was the quality I expected, just not the one I was looking for

I ended up making a toile of this before changing my mind, because it was more difficult for me to think about how to adjust it to be the image I had in my mind, then adjusting one closer to a "traditional" button-down with wide cuffs and a column sleeve placket like I was imagining. I may circle back around at some point to make one, still, but the cut is slightly more formal than I was going for.

Easily adaptable

I have a friend who wanted a tailored shirt to fit her large busted figure, but was unable to find one in RTW. I was able to get her a good fit with this pattern, using minimal adjustments. I will say that the cuff circumference was too small for the average wrist, but was easily adjusted. Overall, a great pattern that sewed out true to finished measurments.

Vernon Shirt rocks.

I love this shirt. It’s taken a bit of fiddling to make sure I have it sized right, but I did not have to do an FBA, and I learned how to do a covered button band. Plus the lantern sleeves are magical. I am very pleased.

Fast delivery and great product

This shirt has narrow cuffs and more fullness in the sleeves. Great fit with size D cup on the front of the shirt.
