This package contains patterns and instructions for the Tabula Rasa Jacket Shirt Variations in sizes XS–3XL. Pattern pieces include a template to transform your basic jacket pattern into a button up shirt or shirt jacket, patterns for a spread and stand-up collar, facings, linings, and a curved cuff to complement the stand-up collar. This package does not include patterns for the jacket front, back or sleeve; please refer to your original Tabula Rasa Jacket pattern for those pieces and for size information.
The detailed instruction book includes design tips to sew, stabilize, press and finish shirts. It also contains directions for a variety of design options including a slit hem with a shirttail or faced finish, a rollback sleeve and cuff, and a bonus embellishment technique.
The TRJ Shirt Variations are appropriate for soft or crisp woven fabrics such as cotton shirting, rayon or wool challis, silk twill and blends in light to medium weights. For a lined shirt jacket, you can move into light to medium weight suitings and bottom weight fabrics such as soft tweeds, twills, gabardines and denim.
