Buy the Everyday Shirt sewing pattern from The Avid Seamstress. Everyone needs a fabulous shirt to dress up or down, that effortless throw-on that goes with everything and is versatile enough for all occasions. The Everyday Shirt is as smart or as casual as your day (or night!) demands.

The shirt has a relaxed fit with an open collar, dropped sleeves and cuff detail. The design features a mitred split hem, a subtle yet quirky detail that gives the opportunity for contrast topstitching, or a straight hem for a more boxy silhouette.

This versatile sewing pattern works just as well in a lightweight denim, smooth Tencel twill or floaty viscose. Opt for a medium weight fabric for a more structured garment.
