Learn to sew shirts on Stitch School!

Learn to sew both a classic women's shirt and men's shirt
in our Intro to Sewing Shirts online class on Stitch School!

In our in-depth online sewing class, we'll introduce you to collars, yokes, traditional cuffs and plackets, and everything else you need to know to sew two classic shirts - and we'll get you sewing them like a pro! The class includes two PDF Patterns for the perfect classic shirt for women and men.

Let's meet the patterns!

Ultimate Shirt

A timeless wardrobe staple, the Ultimate Shirt features a dartless bodice, collar and collar stand, back yoke with inverted box pleat, bound cuff placket with traditional shirt cuffs, grown-on button stands and a gently curved hem.

Easy to wear tucked-in or loose, and with a gentle, flattering fit, it's a great all-occasions shirt.

Pair with a pencil skirt for a chic work look, or wear untucked with a pair of Ultimate Trousers to channel a bit of Audrey Hepburn.

Hackney Shirt

The Hackney Shirt is our shirt pattern for men!

A classic design, it features a collar with collar stand, back yoke with box pleat, traditional shirt cuffs with a tower placket, flat felled seams, grown-on button stands, slightly curved hem and patch chest pocket.

Contemporary and cool, it's slim-fitting yet comfy, and because the collar can be worn both open and with a tie, it works as part of a casual everyday look, as well as keeping you smart at the office.
