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 & FITTING

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)

Sleeve Add On (NZ/AU/UK 6-16  | US 2-12)
Sleeve Add On (NZ/AU/UK 14-24  | US 10-20)

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.

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.
