The Waikerie Shirt [pronounced like bakery] is designed for options! Interchangeable pattern pieces allow you to mix and match finishes.

View A is a cropped, boxy shirt with a back yoke.
View B and View C feature an inverted box pleat at the back and a high-low hem with beautifully finished, mitered side splits. View C is a collarless view with a high-low hem.

All views feature a dropped shoulder and forward yoke seam, and Views A and B include a faced soft collar that can be buttoned up or left open for a relaxed vibe.

All views can be sewn with a short sleeve that uses our unique sleeve band application, or with a long sleeve that features a hidden placket and a generous pleat at the wrist.


We would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the Waikerie region, the Meru people, and pay our respects to Elders past and present.

Fit Expectations: This shirt is designed to have a large amount of design ease. The yoke is designed to sit in front of the top of your shoulder.

Muna and Broad patterns are designed with large bodies in mind and we’ve ensured there’s room for you. Because of this, there’s no need to “size up”

Leila has a 50" (127cm) Full Bust and a sewing size D Cup (4" between upper and full bust) I have a 48.5" (123cm) Full Bust and a C Cup (3" difference). The Waikerie is designed with an oversized fit and no bust dart, the shirt will work as-is on a variety of bodies, regardless of cup size and is designed with a 4" difference between the full and upper bust. As always, we do recommend toiling the pattern before cutting in to your 'good' fabric.

Suggested Fabric:

This pattern is designed for use with a variety of woven fabrics. Linen, Cotton, Rayon, Silk, Tencel, and Viscose fabrics.

As with most garment sewing, we do not recommend the use of quilting cottons.

The Waikerie Shirt look great with over our wide-leg Glebe Pants, our drapey Willandra Pants and our tapered, side-pocketed Sculthorpe Pants. The cropped View A shirt is long enough to sit over the waistband of our pants.

Wear it as a layer over a Nullarbor Cami or layer a Mallee Jacket, or Waikerie Dress as a duster, over the top.
