With its boxy shape, cropped hem and pretty collar, Libby is a contemporary yet timeless little shirt with loads of potential.

The Libby Shirt features a comfortable loose fit, button-up front, notched collar, partial collar stand, unlined yoke with gently gathered back, and short grown-on cuffed sleeves. Ideal for wearing with a high-waisted skirt or jeans, the Libby Shirt has a cropped hem with two options: keep it straight across the front, or gently curve it to add a little extra length. Both versions feature a slightly curved back hem. Uninterrupted by darts, the Libby Shirt makes the perfect canvas for fun prints – though of course she looks gorgeous in a solid too.

Thanks to its easy fit, with this pattern you can really focus on nailing the details. The unusual collar stand and notched collar give you the chance to build your sewing skills. Easier to sew than a traditional collared shirt, it’s a manageable, fun-to-make and of course stylish intro into the world of shirtmaking.

Sewing Level
The Libby Shirt sewing pattern is perfect for intermediate sewers onwards, or advanced beginners who’d like a challenge.

Fabric Suggestions
For the Libby Shirt we recommend lightweight woven fabrics with lots of drape, such as rayon, viscose, georgette and lightweight crepes. For less experienced stitchers, it would also look lovely in a lightweight cotton such as lawn or voile, plus lightweight linens and viscose linens.

Fabric Requirements
The Libby Shirt sewing pattern is available in sizes 8-20. See the size chart for details on measurements and fabric requirements. 

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
