The Over Shirt is a functional and comfortable worker style jacket with classic shirt making construction details. Our PDF Pattern comes with in depth written instructions, an A4 tile copy and an A0 version.
Skill level: Intermediate sewers
Sizing: Sizes 6 - 20 are included in this pattern. Our sizes run true to UK sizing - for full sizing details see below in the drop down menu.
Fit notes: The Over Shirt has dropped shoulders with a roomy square fit and a cropped length (finishing just on the hips). Those looking for a slightly longer length can very easily adjust the pattern to add extra length to the body - this works particularly well with heavier fabrics.
Construction techniques: Run & fell seams, placket & cuff, collar & collar stand, double yoke and patch pockets
Suitable fabrics: This piece works in a huge range of fabrics, from heavier denims and twills to lighter weight cottons & linens. You could even try a wool felt version for winter.
You will receive both an A4 & A0 digital pattern along with step by step sewing instructions. You can either print your pattern at home on an A4 printer or send the A0 digital copy to a printing shop (there are many that do this for a very reasonable price). If you decide to print in A4 you will need to piece the tiles together to make one huge page. There is a guide on how to do this included in the instructions.
