Introducing our third and final pattern release for 2022 – the Harlow Shirt! Shirts are definitely having a moment and this one combines all the design and practicality we look for (and love) in one. We’ve adopted some favourite features from previous Tessuti shirt patterns and added some new ones as well.

The Harlow Shirt is a hip length button-through shirt with a soft, relaxed look. So relaxed, in fact, that we suggest making it without interfacing the collar and facings (but you can, of course, fuse them if you prefer to).

A centre back seam delivers lovely swing and flare which is also enhanced by the angled front seams and forward facing hem split. Topstitching highlights the patch pockets, convertible collar and back yoke with forward and extended shoulders.

Bracelet length sleeves have deep hems and feature a small slit which allows them to be worn either down, turned back or rolled up a few times over.

Silva loves wearing her Harlow with our Tamiko Pants pattern, as pictured here. Both are made in Bedford Lead Washed Linen (also available in these colours too).

Also, this pattern has a convertible collar which means no collar stand, allowing to sit flat around the neckline.

Corinne’s version is made in our Bedford Mustard and she loves wearing it as a jacket. She’s paired it (above) with her Robbie Pants and (below) with a Felicia Pinafore Dress (fabric sold out). Two completely different looks, both effortlessly stylish.

Suitable fabrics for the Harlow Shirt include mid-weight linens & cottons,  pinwale corduroy, light-weight denim, single wool crepe and silk dupion.

The pattern comes in two (Australian) size ranges – 6-16 and 16-22 and is now available in both hardcopy and PDF copy shop/print-at-home versions – UK/EU customers can purchase from our Tessuti Pattern UK website here.

We can’t wait to see your versions and if you’re sharing them with us on Instagram, don’t forget to use the #TessutiPatterns #HarlowShirt hashtags!

Tessuti pattern fans might notice some similarities between Harlow and our Helga Shirt. Helga, originally released in 2016, shares a similar stepped hemline and sleeve cuff details but we’ve made the decision to discontinue it (in both hardcopy and PDF) it in in favour of this new shirt pattern. The final day to purchase Helga will be December 31st 2022, so if you wish to grab a copy before it disappears forever, you have until then.
