Cashmerette's New Pattern - The Harrison Shirt

Hello, Friends!  I know it has been a minute, but those of you who follow me on Instagram know that I have moved, sold the old house, and bought a new house.  When we arrived at the new house, there were chores to be done outside of the normal unpacking.  More on that in another post.

At the moment, my sewing machines are all still packed away.  I will get to unpacking them, but first I have to get some furnishings to set them on.  Long story short, we donated about 80 percent of our furniture from the house in Indiana, so I now need to replace it.

Since I can't sew I have been thinking about where I want to take my sewing this Fall and Winter.  Sewing for living in Tennessee will be a little different than sewing for living in Indiana.  It doesn't get as frigid here.  I will need to think more about layering, and less about making my individual pieces warm and toasty.  With that in mind, I have been working on a plus size pattern capsule to build my wardrobe from.

Last night, I was thinking about what pattern I would use for the perfect classic women's white shirt.  All of the button down shirt patterns that I have tried in the past have been kind of meh.  Then this morning I find my Instagram feed going crazy with the announcement of Jenny's/Cashmerette's new Harrison Shirt pattern.  It was like divine intervention.

This pattern has so much to love ya'll!  With princess seams, a two-piece collar, and back yoke what is not to love!  I see this in a Liberty print, in a masculine striped oxford, but first to find the perfect white shirting for a classic white shirt.

Congratulations to Jenny for creating another fantastic pattern!!!  Can't wait to get my pattern in the mail (it is also available as a PDF) and maybe get my sewing room set up so that I can actually make this awesome shirt.
