Over Shirt by Modern Sewing Co.

The Over Shirt is a functional and comfortable worker style jacket with classic shirt making construction details.


The Over Shirt has dropped shoulders with a roomy square fit and a cropped length (finishing just on the hips). Those looking for a slightly longer length can very easily adjust the pattern to add extra length to the body – this works particularly well with heavier fabrics.

Available in two size options:

UK 6-20
UK 18-28

In the following formats:
  • PDF: Includes instructions, A4 tiled print at home, US letter tiled print at home and A0 files
  • PDF + A0 Printing: Includes the PDF file as above and A0 printing





This piece works in a huge range of fabrics, from heavier denims and twills to lighter weight cottons & linens. You could even try a wool felt version for winter.
