Women's Shirt Maker's Express  VS-XL *************PAPER Pattern************* Class available on

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, Sleeve Plackets 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 contrasting topstitching on a sport or casual shirt.

    Women's Shirt Maker's Express

    Posted by Teresa Atcheson on 8th Oct 2018

    I had never made a shirt before in my life, but I've now made two and I love them. I have received many compliments from friends who also sew -- my toughest critics. I did add two shaping darts in the back and adjusted each of the front darts toward the center by 1/2 inch to fit my body better. The shape is VERY flattering. Not at all like wearing a man's shirt, yet still plenty of room to move with ease. It was very helpful to sew my first shirt while watching the bluprint/craftsy course, but I was able to make the second one in about 3 and a half hours just using the instruction book as needed. Just be sure you have access to a machine that can make great buttonholes. My much loved mechanical machine does not, but my new fancy one can make them in a snap.

    Wonderful service; great pattern!

    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.

    Great shirt pattern

    Posted by Jane on 20th Sep 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.

    Quality and Customer Service

    Posted by BB on 15th 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.

    coordinated perfectly with video lesson

    Posted by Nancy Vallario on 29th Aug 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.
