with layered raw neck, wrist and hem edges this shirt is a little something different. Sewn in linen or a range of cotton weaves in order to maximize the impact of the frayed raw hems, the Raw Edge Shirt celebrates natural fibers with style.
A sister shirt to the ever popular Heron Shirt, with a lower neckline and a bit more "sass".
We use layered wrist panels to also construct the elastic wrist band and provide design features for the hem and optional mid sleeve. You have the choice of long or elbow length sleeves (and anything in between). Instructions included to easily hack this shirt to a dress.
Have some fun and celebrate something a little different.

Please refer to the FABRIC REQUIREMENT CHART as one of the last images on this product listing. You can magnify this image by clicking on it if viewing on a mobile phone whilst in a fabric store.
The Raw Edge Shirt is designed for light to mid-weight woven LINEN & COTTON. Shirt weight wovens are perfect to get the best gather and most effective fraying of the raw edges.
*Please also note that all (new) fabric should be pre-washed in case of shrinkage. 100% cotton & linen will shrink during the first wash. It doesn't hurt to be safe and remove any dodgy chemical build-up that may have occurred during printing anyway.

Loved the process of crafting up this pattern. I love something with a point of difference & this pattern with its raw edges won me over. I made the size based on the finished measurements and it was perfect. Ive made 2 for myself & since then made 2 as gifts for special friends.
I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed making this shirt and dealing with Sewing Revival. FINALLY! Sewing patterns that are stylish AND uncomplicated! How much can I tell you about having a printed pattern as opposed to all those old tissue paper ones! Just fabulous. The raw edge shirt is adorable. It is a little fuller in the neck but that is my smallest area so I may do some adjusting on my next one. HIGHLY recommend!
Having made quite a few long-sleeved raw edge tops that I enjoy wearing, I decided to try the dress hack, it worked perfectly, and I love it. Great instructions and I love the multiple options you have to make this unique for you. I only left the neck as raw edge and have hemmed everything else and did not add a belt as I preferred it loose fitting. I also used cord for the necktie which I like with this material.
Loved the pattern and grateful for the clever instructions. My new dusky blue linen raw edge shirt is my new favourite. I added some length and have found it’s even better worn “back to front” which gives me a flattering v neck. Thank you !
I have now made 2 of the Raw ( not so raw) Edge Shirts and have just completed the dress version. Love the raw neck edge as it is easy to construct but I couldn't cope with the raw edges on the sleeves or the hem so have hemmed all of those and love it done that way. Great fit and am loving working with the Linen/Cotton blend, easy to sew and sits nicely.
This is an elegant shirt that can be dressed up or have the edgy casual finish. It was quick and easy to make with great instructions. I used elastic in the neck instead of a tie which was an easy change to make. The key to this shirt is choosing the fabric. Not too heavy and easily frayed. I chose an embroidery anglaise which didn't fray well but with perserverence (while watching tv) I spent the time fraying it around the fiddly embroidery bits which totally changed the appearance. I love it now and I have already bought more fabric to make another one.
