Buy the Byrdie Button-up Blouse and Dress sewing pattern from Pattern Scout. Byrdie is a button-up, collared blouse with thoughtful details that take this wardrobe staple to the next level. It has a loose fit with subtle shaping and optional bust darts to give it a flattering silhouette. Pair Byrdie with your favourite jeans for a casual look, or tuck it into slacks for a more polished style. Both versions can also be sewn as a shirtdress with a tie waist.

Version A is a classic button-up shirt with a straight point collar and optional breast pockets. Version B features tuxedo shirt-style tucks across the bust, bishop-style sleeves, and a simple band collar.

Suggested fabrics: Light to medium weight woven fabrics. For a more structured, boxy fit, use fabrics such as linen, chambray, poplin, and voile. For a more fluid drape and flowing fit, use fabrics such as Tencel, rayon challis, and crepe de chine.

Fabric requirements: 

Version A:

Blouse: 45″ (115 cm) wide fabric: 3 – 3 3/4 yd (2.8 – 3.4 m) // 54″ (150 cm) wide fabric: 2 1/4 – 3 yd (2 – 2.8 m).

Dress: 45″ (115 cm) wide fabric: 4 1/4 – 5 3/4 yd (3.9 – 5.3 m) // 54″ (150 cm) wide fabric: 3 1/2 – 4 1/2 yd (3.2 – 4.1 m).

Version B:

Blouse: 45″ (115 cm) wide fabric: 3 1/4 – 4 yd (2.9 – 3.6 m) // 54″ (150 cm) wide fabric: 2 1/4 – 3 yd (2 – 2.8 m).

Dress: 45″ (115 cm) wide fabric: 4 1/2 – 6 yd (4.1 – 5.5 m) // 54″ (150 cm) wide fabric: 3 1/2 – 4 1/2 yd (3.2 – 4.1 m).

Sizing: US 0 – 28 (approx. UK 6 – 28) with B, C and D cup sizes. Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements. Choose your size based on your high bust measurement.

A note from the designer about bust cup options: To select the proper size, first select the size that corresponds with your high bust measurement, then find the cup size according to this general rule: If the difference between your high bust and full bust measurements is 1″ – 2″ (2.5 cm – 5 cm), you will sew the B cup; 2″ – 3″ (5 cm – 7.5 cm), you will sew the C cup; 3″ – 4″ (7.5 cm – 10 cm), you will sew the D cup. For a difference less than 1″ (2.5 cm) you can sew the B cup and eliminate the dart. For a difference greater than 4″ (10 cm) an additional FBA may be required.

Refer to the finished garment measurements chart to verify that the finished bust measurement is approximately 4″ – 6″ (10 cm – 15 cm) greater than your full bust measurement for a comfortable fit in the bust, based on your personal fit preferences.

Notions: Approx. 1 yd (1 m) of fusible lightweight interfacing; 12 or 18 buttons (shirt or dress), 1/2″ diameter recommended.

PDF pattern includes: Instructions; US letter/A4 print-at-home pattern; copy shop file.
