With its boxy shape, cropped hem and pretty collar, Libby is a contemporary yet timeless little shirt with loads of potential.

The Libby Shirt features a comfortable loose fit, button-up front, notched collar, partial collar stand, unlined yoke with gently gathered back, and short grown-on cuffed sleeves. Ideal for wearing with a high-waisted skirt or jeans, the Libby Shirt has a cropped hem with two options: keep it straight across the front, or gently curve it to add a little extra length. Both versions feature a slightly curved back hem. Uninterrupted by darts, the Libby Shirt makes the perfect canvas for fun prints – though of course she looks gorgeous in a solid too.

Thanks to its easy fit, with this pattern you can really focus on nailing the details. The unusual collar stand and notched collar give you the chance to build your sewing skills. Easier to sew than a traditional collared shirt, it’s a manageable and stylish intro into the world of shirtmaking.

Fabric Suggestions

For the Libby Shirt we recommend lightweight woven fabrics with lots of drape, such as rayon, viscose, georgette and lightweight crepes. For less experienced stitchers, it would also look lovely in a lightweight cotton such as lawn or voile, plus lightweight linens and viscose linens.

What is a PDF pattern?

A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper.

Choose to add on A0 printing and we will print the pattern on our A0 printers and post it to you so all you need to access digitally is the instruction booklet.

If you're using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
