From Hey June:

Amherst is a camp-style shirt with cargo styling and classic features:

  • Collar and collar stand
  • Button-down styling (meaning the collar stand has a button)
  • Back yoke and pleat
  • Short sleeves with an integrated cuff
  • Sleeve tabs
  • Interchangeable squared or rounded pockets and pocket flaps with optional button
  • Curved, shirt-tail hem
  • Gentle side seam shaping
  • A separate full bust front piece with bust and waist darts for shaping (shown in yellow in the product images)

This pattern includes several introductory pages with information on picking the best size based on high bust, using the included full bust front piece if necessary, basic alterations, choosing fabric, and helpful sewing notes.

Skills used: interfacing, top and edge stitching, easing via a gathering stitch, turning a tube, buttonholes or snaps, back yoke burrito method, and stay stitching.
