Harrison Shirt curvy inspiration

Is there anything more classic than a button-down shirt? It’s a wardrobe staple that can effortlessly transition from day to night, work to play, and now with the Harrison Shirt, you can enjoy the versatility of this classic shape without having to worry about gaping that plagues us! To get you excited to sew your own, we’ve gathered some of our favorite curvy button-down shirt inspiration.

Chambray is one of our favorite choices for the Harrison…a wear-ever fabric that allows your personality and creativity to shine. Mix it with a different denim or dress it up with a skirt. No matter how you wear this classic fabric, you’ll look effortless and chic. We’ve even got a chambray shirt kit available so you can get all your supplies in one go!

    I can’t wait to make mine. I’m thinking of making a wearable muslin out of my husband’s old varied business shirts ans then cutting in some Liberty Lawn I’ve been hoarding!

    Hmmmmm…has anyone tried a Harrison/shirt dress hack? I haven’t tried to sew a shirt dress because I’m afraid of the top gaping.

    1. Michelle says:

      Once I get the fit perfected, I’m going to do just that.

Let me know what you think!
