Asymmetric shirt


Let's see how to draft the pattern of this asymmetric shirt.

Any shirt fabric will work, but you'll get the best out of this pattern if using a striped fabric that highlights the different grainlines.

Step 1

Start from a basic block.

Draw the back yoke and the slash lines as you see in red.

Draw the front button stand and slash lines.

Step 2

Cut both pieces through the lines and open them with the new volume.

The drape you see on front is actually given from the extra length.

Step 3

Your pattern is ready:

  • back yoke
  • back shirt with two pleats
  • two fronts with the center curved
  • a straight piece for the button stand
  • two pieces collar
  • shirt sleeve with placket and cuff.
