Ready-to-wear inspiration for the Vernon Shirt

Get inspired to sew the Vernon Shirt, a darted button-up sewing pattern designed for curves in sizes 0-32 and cup sizes C-H!

If you have big boobs, you know it’s very hard to find a button-up shirt that doesn’t gape in the front. But now you can get a gloriously gape-free fit in a button-up with the Vernon Shirt! The darted design has multiple sleeve, collar and placket options to help you create the gape-free shirt of your dreams.

There are so many different ways to sew and wear a button-up shirt—the possibilities are truly endless! If you’re not sure where to start or what look to go for, here are some of our favorite button-up ideas from ready-to-wear to help you on your way.

Go classic with View A

Why not start with a classic? After all, it’s a classic for a reason! And now it can be your go-to shirt with a fabulous fit in the bust and all over.

Turn up the drama with View B

If your wardrobe is anything but ordinary, skip the basics and go straight for the voluminous lantern sleeves of View B.

Get playful with prints

The Vernon is a great canvas for any print, from the ditsy to the oversized. Pair your Vernon with jeans or black pants to make the print the focal point of your ensemble.

Endless ways to style your Vernon

From casual wear to workwear to faux jumpsuits, your Vernon is just that—yours. Style it a dozen different ways depending on your mood or the weather or what’s in the clean pile or whatever!

Get hacky

Sew a quick tie with the same fabric for an instant pussy bow blouse, or add length to turn your Vernon into a shirtdress! We love a good pattern hack and can’t wait to see what you make with the Vernon.

Let’s start sewing!

    I really want to sew this but have to get caught up first! I want to do a shirt without a placket, just a flat edge on both sides like an aloha shirt (I’m sure there is a term for it.) When I get the pattern I will have to take a close look at it comparing it to other shirt patterns I have to see how to do this!

Let me know what you think!
