The Shirt Maker's Express pattern is the perfect basic shirt with a modern fit, destined to be your "go-to" shirt pattern. With just a few options, Shirt Maker's Express will transform from a dress shirt made from fine Italian cotton shirting, to a comfortable sports shirt by using a cotton/linen plaid and even a casual over shirt when you choose corduroy or chambray. Optional back darts help give the wearer a trim look and Full Bust Adjustment instructions are included. Other options include cutting the Cuffs, SleevePlackets and the Yoke on the bias of plaids, stipes or checks to give added interest. Choose monochromatic thread for the dress shirt style and try contrasing topstitching on a sport or casual shirt.
I am enjoying the Craftsy course, and was pleased to see I could order the paper version of the women's shirt. It is coming together well! Thank you for offering a reasonably shipping rate to Canada. Jill Roberts on 2nd Feb 2017
This without a doubt is THE BEST shirt pattern available ANYWHERE! The fit is right on and the features of the shirt are great! Jola James on 14th Dec 2016
I purchased this pattern to go along with Janet's Craftsy class on shirts. It is well written and thank you for the section on bust adjustments. So necessary but so hard to find. Jane on 20th Sep 2016
Although I have not cut or sewn my Women's Shirtmaker Express Pattern yet, I'm impressed with the pattern in terms of its quality packaging, pattern paper and markings, cutting and sewing instructions with extra tips and hints for sewing success. BB on 15th Sep 2016
I made three shirts. The last one fit perfectly due to a few little alterations. Darts lowered, sleeves shortened a little and the fact that I had developed some expertise and confidence from the lesson. Great course and the pattern illustrations are a good as they get on paper.
Plus, I asked a question and got an answer by email and on Craftsy. Great response and hel;pful. I have done the jacket and the shirt, next the pants. Nancy Vallario on 29th Aug 2016
