Willamette Shirt

Hey June

The Willamette Shirt is a casual boxy dolman popover shirt in three views.  View A features a shirt tail hem and view B puts a twist on it with a waist seam for fun colorblocking opportunities.  View C is a cropped shirt, perfect for pairing with high waisted jeans.  All three views have easy faced plackets, a one-piece collar, back yoke, and back pleat.  Options include a button in the placket for increased modesty, shirt cuffs or cap sleeves, and chest pockets.

    5 out of 5 Willamette and frogs...


    Loved this pattern – just stumbled across it and after a bit of insta-research on how it looked on different bodies it hopped to the top of my queue.

    I really liked the fact you can have buttons, or not buttons at all – the instructions were great although I did have a bit of difficulty with the burito-method which also included all the facings etc.

    It’s a satisfying make and would look great in colourful prints!

    5 out of 5 My new favourite shirt!

    Frugal Kate

    This pattern had been on my “to make list” for quite some time, but after seeing a couple of gorgeous versions pop up on my feed, it finally shot to the top.

    It came together perfectly and I found the instructions clear and easy to follow. The fact that there are no button holes, apart from an optional one at the top (which I found I did not need), meant it was also a fairly quick make, as I tend to dither a bit around the task of adding button holes!

    I made my version out of a viscose as I wanted a drapey comfortable shirt and that’s exactly what I got.

    I think this pattern is the perfect starting point for anyone who is yet to tackle a shirt, or a more experienced sewer who wants a less involved, but no less satisfying make.

    Needless to say I already have at least another 3 planned!!

    5 out of 5 Excellent shirt pattern


    I made mine in straight size 10 (I’m 38-31-39) with no changes except for shortening the bodice by 1.5″ (4cm) as I am just over 5’2″. I made mine in viscose See You at Six fabric called Strokes in aqua. As this is a loose-fit shirt and you can getaway with no button closure at all, this has the potential to be a quick project. It wasn’t a quick project for me, simply because I chose a slippery viscose fabric that requires extra care to handle and I really didn’t want to ruin my (precious) fabric. I made view A with one button closure. I did make proper buttonhole, though it isn’t necessary to pop it on or take it off as the neck opening is wide enough. I think this shirt will be perfect when Summer finally comes around, I’m planning to make either Ash or Dawn jeans to pair with this new favourite shirt. The instructions are clear and I love that the designer actually put in the instructions the finishing techniques; burrito method for the yoke and facing, french seam for the side seams, and if (like me) you choose the cuffed sleeves you’d end up with the raw edges of the sleeves enclosed by cuffs neatly. I am seriously in love with this pattern! It really feels like it was made by a maker who makes, who cares about the finished garment. I would definitely recommend this pattern.

    I have more detailed review on my blog :

    Hope this helps.

    What an excellent pattern! Clear instructions, clean finishing, three variations and great shape and fit. It would be a great first shirt pattern as there are no buttons and buttonholes to contend with and no sleeves to set in either.
    This is my first Hey June Handmade pattern but it certainly won’t be the last.
