Granville/Harrison Shirt Sew Along
Is there a classic shirt on your list of projects? The Granville Shirt from Sewaholic Patterns (pear shapes) or Harrison from Cashmerette (more curvy, full bust) have front bust dart (princess seams for Harrison), back yoke and back princess seams for optimal fitting options. Try it out of stretch cotton if you are looking for something more comfy. Great pattern instructions and drafting for collar, stand and cuffs.
This is a sew along so while there will be fitting help, we will focus on collar, cuff and placket techniques to be sure the shirt is completed.
