If you haven’t had a chance yet to sew the Liesl + Co. Classic Shirt that you’ve wanted to, here is your motivation to get one done! We are happy to announce that we will be hosting a Classic Shirt sew-along from May 8 to May 12. And we hope you will join us!
A wardrobe staple, this shirt is both versatile and polished. The pattern features separate pieces for A/B, C, and D cup sizes and includes many professional details like separate collar and collar band, tower sleeve placket, and collar and cuff facings to help you sew beautiful looking (and fitting!) shirts. View A includes a separate (set-in) placket and workshirt-style pockets. View B features a continuous (cut-on) placket and pleated pockets with concealed button flaps.
This pattern was very well received when it was released. Liesl has already put together some great posts for you all about the Classic Shirt:
- Styling ideas

- Faux flat-felled seams
- Machine bartack tutorial
- Shirt gusset tutorial
- Three contrast details
