Heron Shirt

Regular price $16.50

Unit price per 

Size

This pattern has a high, halter and open neck style options with long sleeve (standard or 2 part gather), short sleeve and sleeveless variations.  A shirt for all seasons and a pattern with lots of versatility. 

Super EASY to sew - the closed neck styles are great for beginners (with short or standard long sleeve). A perfect first shirt to sew without buttons or other closures. The open neck style is slightly more involved but still straightforward. If you are a beginner sewer wanting to extend yourself - the open neck style is perfect, and the gathered sleeves also a great "next step". You might like to trial it first in an up-cycled cotton sheet to build your confidence and your wardrobe at the same time. The easy-to-follow instructions build your skills as you sew.

The Heron Shirt is a sister to the Heron Dress with different sleeve options that are interchangeable. 

This pattern also looks great as a beach cover up simply lengthened (see our version in an olive cotton lawn embroidery anglaise).

FABRIC

Please refer to the FABRIC REQUIREMENT CHART as one of the last images on this product listing. You can magnify this image if viewing on a mobile phone whilst in a fabric store.

The Heron Shirt is designed for light to mid-weight WOVEN fabrics.

We recommend rayon, silk, polyester, lightweight linen, cotton and cotton blends for summer.  Please refer to the product images for inspiration on fabric types we have used.

*Please also note that all (new) fabric should be pre-washed in case of shrinkage. Some fabrics will not shrink but 100% cotton, linen and rayon are almost guaranteed to shrink. It doesn't hurt to be safe and remove any dodgy chemical build-up that may have occurred during printing anyway.

DIFFICULTY

The high neck options are great for confident beginners.
The open neck tops and 2-piece gathered sleeves are an easy intermediate level.

SIZE & PRINTING

This is a loose-fitting garment. If you prefer it to be a little less "roomy" or you are "in-between" sizes then we suggest you err on the smaller size. 

Each purchase comes with 4 sizes (please refer to the last image for size chart and international size comparisons):

Small - (NZ/AU/UK 6-8-10-12  | US 2-4-6-8)                    
Medium - (NZ/AU/UK 10-12-14-16  | US 6-8-10-12)      
Large - (NZ/AU/UK 14-16-18-20  | US 10-12-14-16)        
X-Large - (NZ/AU/UK 18-20-22-24  | US 14-16-18-20)     


PATTERN UPDATE

19 September 2022:
The bottom section of the 2 piece sleeve (gathered balloon style) was reduced in size after customer feedback that it was too voluminous (and re-testing at our end). If you have already printed this pattern piece (number 5), you can easily adjust the width by following the instructions here.

If you purchased and printed after 19 September 2022 you will have the updated version of this pattern and no adjustments are required.


WHAT DO I GET WITH MY PURCHASE?

Please note you are purchasing a digital pattern that will be sent directly to your email inbox after payment. *You will not receive a hard copy printed pattern.*

For the Heron Shirt will receive a link to download 3 different PDF files:

1. Instructions

2. PAH Pattern file (PAH=Print at home)
For printing in A4 or US Letter on a home printer. Printing at home is the most cost-effective, and sticking your pattern tiles together to make your full size pattern is easy. Further information for printing at home can be found in our Resources section here. 

3. AO Pattern file
AO is a large scale file designed to be printed at a Print Copy Shop. You cannot print this on your home printer as it is too big. If you choose to use this large file you will pay extra to have it printed but you do not have to stick anything together.

You can use the ADOBE LAYERS FEATURE to open the PAH pattern file and print only the size you need (and eliminate the "noise" of the unwanted sizes). You can also use the URL and bookmark links within the file to quickly access information and support. Download Adobe Reader for free (for Windows and Mac) here.

This was another easy to follow pattern from sewing revival. The sizing is spot on for me.

Easy and unique

It’s hard to find blouses that fit well with no mods. This is one. I usually sew with knits and so wovens worry me a bit as I often don’t understand all the directions. It was my first time using biased tape for the edges and it was the only part I fumbled a bit never having done it before. Apart from that, the blouse came together perfectly. I can’t wait to make a long sleeve version!

Heron top

The pattern was very easy to download and the step by step instructions were easy to follow. The garment has turned out exactly as the picture and is true to size. I liked the variety of pictures showing the different fabrics that could be used. I would definitely recommend using these patterns.

Heron Shirt

There were a few pieces in the description that i found less clear. Overall I really enjoyed the pattern. The neckline didn't quite turned out as i expected it. Maybe i will add more elastic next time to make it less tight around the neck and I would have liked it to be slightly higher (the gathering not so close to the edge). I will make more for sure :-), maybe the one with the front opening so I can avoid the problem mentioned above. Would definitely recommend in that it is quick and easy and overall a good effect for the time it takes.

It was great but I’m not that great with computers so having to down load and print (which I haven’t printed yet) is a bit of a pain if I’m honest. I would pay more for a printed pattern

Pattern was easy to use Good clean instructions I decided to make the size 14 rather than the 12 I had originally planned after seeing the pattern this turned out to be a good decision I’m very happy with how my top came out

Think I've made six so far.

Love the pattern - so easy to make. Have made several versions now experimenting with sleeve lengths and neck lines. Add a matching mask and you're set to go :).

I have made three of these tops so far and also made the Heron dress. I am now keen to make the halter neck. I would love to see any pictures if anyone has made one.

Heron shirt

The shirt pattern and style are great. I used a light linen, it looks really good but I think for me, my shoulders are wide, and the style is too gathered. I used my normal size but could have sized down.

Heron Shirt

I am not an experienced sewer, but this pattern was easy enough to follow. There was one part that was a bit tricky to under, but an email to Janine & she helped put my on the right track. My heron shirt turned out amazing & I have had many compliments on it, I intend to make many more in different colours.

This a great pattern. My first time using a sewing revival pattern. Took a while to get the pattern together, probably more time than actually sewing the top up. Instructions were ok. You probably would have to know a bit about sewing to make it. Love the top and have made 2 already and will make more. Didn't like the ruffled short sleeve so took the elastic out easy fix.

I have a problem with not being able to download onto my iPad which is where l usually print from. What happens if you don’t have a desktop or laptop? I’ve been able to do that with other pattern companies so why can’t l do this with you? Anyway apart from that it was a great pattern.

The pattern instructions were excellent and the blouse was so simple to sew. Could not believe a blouse to be so beautiful yet so easy!
