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.

Beautiful pattern with lots of sleeve options

I’m on my second one, first one in a light linen Cotten blend, next one in a rayon. Great sleeve options that will go with any fabric choices.

Review of Heron shirt pattern.

Terrible experience, print so poor I can’t read it . I will never make this shirt or buy another pattern from you. I would actually like a refund as I will never use this pattern. I would have expected the print to be black but it is pale pink and pale orange as are the diagrams. I would be happy to mail you my copies . Thank you for your attention , Judy Sprott. 0276345079

Hi Judy, First of all, we recommend all customers contact us directly by email (or the contact form on the website) if you have any queries or issues as we make it a priority to help you through any hiccup and ensure you have a positive experience with us. Secondly, any issue with print quality has to do with your home printer, not our pattern. We differentiate the different pattern sizes by using different coloured lines with a different line markings. Our printing instructions highlight that you can either print in black and white (the different sizes are still obvious as they have different line markings and also size labels), or print in colour (an expensive use of ink but some customers prefer this) or use the layers function in Adobe Reader (link provided to free app if you don't already have it) and print only the size you want to sew (selecting the black ink option on your printer settings). May we suggest you refer to the printing instructions, ensure you select the black (not colour) ink option on your printer settings and use the Adobe layers option to show and print only your size. This will leave you with a simple black line marking your pattern pieces without the "noise" of other sizes. Kind regards, Janine

Instruction were excellent, very easy to follow and understand. I made two tops, one in a silky blouse material and one in a light flannel for a different look (don't do this in flannel, I looked like a scare crow). I don't love the way the back looks, it seems to have a lot of extra material and looks baggy. I made one with a draw string and one with the elastic neck, both were big in the back. Maybe it is more flattering if you have a larger chest. Undecided if I will try another pattern.

Hi Linda, Thanks for taking the time to review the Heron Shirt sewing pattern. This top is a loose fit and is easily sized down (simply sew up a smaller size). Kind regards, Janine
