Donny Shirt Fitting

The Donny Shirt has a boxy fit without being oversized. There is no shaping through the waist and hips. It is slightly cropped and the hem is meant to fall above your hips. If you lengthen the top so that it falls below your hip line, make sure it will fit around your full hip measurement. The Donny Top was drafted using sample measurements for a B bra cup and for a height of 5’6”[168cm].

We recommend choosing a size based on your full chest measurement.

Lengthening/Shortening the Shirt
  • On Front (A) and Back (D) cut across the lengthen/shorten line.
  • To lengthen, spread the pieces apart to add the desired amount of length. Tape a scrap of paper in place behind your new opening.
  • To shorten, overlap the pieces to remove the desired amount of length. Tape in place.
  • Redraw sideseams.
  • Trace new pattern pieces!


Raising the Neckline
  • On Front (A) trace the neckline around the circle mark going above and below it by a couple inches. Be sure to also add the circle mark placement to your traced piece.
  • Cut out your traced piece and mark its placement on Front (A)

  • Move the piece up along the center front as much as you want to raise the neckline (e.g. 1"). Keep the straight edge below the lapel lined up on your new traced piece and Front (A).
  • Tape it in place and then smooth the curve of the lapel.
  • Retrace your piece. Repeat these steps with Front Facing (B).
