Shirt Pattern Help!

I need this style shirt in a pattern:



I need the 'B' top and the 'BC' back. Unfortunately, I don't know what this style shirt is called and I only found one pattern in a women's plus size and I'm a regular US size 8

Does anyone know what the style of blouse this is or know of a similar pattern?

Thanks!

Well, for menswear, it'd be a dress shirt or a button-up shirt; I think the equivalent womenswear term is a blouse, but maybe those terms still apply. It has a back yoke. The style in the front could be referred to as "vertical stylelines" or "curved princess seams". The collar looks like a convertible collar. The sleeves have cuffs and plackets.

I recommend just loading up pattern company websites (Butterick, McCall's, Simplicity, Vogue, and/or Burda) and just browse through the collections of women's shirts. If you don't need it too fitting, you can try the unisex collections as well.

Okay now where did your other thread go that I answered earlier? I linked you to that EXACT pattern.

BTW 18W is a Small. I suggest taking a look at their size chart.

Ohhh, I thought those were all plus sizes XD;;
But actually, looking at it the 18W is still a bit too big for me.

I was going to say, that's a women's pattern. The button placket is women's-style.

The real question is whether you need those exact seams or not, because there are a lot of women's tops/blouses. Several of which probably have either the back yoke or the princess seams, although I don't usually see them together in the same shirt. And lo, digit has the pattern.

Oooooh. Man I love next-gen video games where you can SEE THE SEAMS! /loves on

It also looks like she has a center back seam, possibly. You're already going to have to alter the yoke to have the point but that shouldn't be too hard. I'd say start with the Butterick pattern - go pick up a copy in the store if you can, look at the envelope, read their suggested sizes compared to measurements, and see if it'll fit you or you can mod it to fit. Honestly, with commercial patterns, their numbers do not correspond to in-store "sizes" and sometimes a pattern may tell you that cutting the "18" will give you a shirt that fits your measurements, but the pattern could run small or large. When I'm actually using patterns, I like to take out the instruction sheet from the envelope and read it before I purchase it, to make sure it WILL do what I want. Butterick is not terrible - their instructions actually make sense. But their sizes bear no resemblance to reality.
