Additional Notes

This PDF pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

Some of the pattern instructions were a little confusing. I had a lot of trouble with the placket. I ended up cutting a new one and making it wider than the original pattern piece. I liked the french seams. I had to rip out and redo many different parts -- but I think that was user error. I consider myself an intermediate sewer but still struggled with aspects.

I have a deep love for this pattern, and when in doubt there is a full sew-along on the Hey June blog.

Obsessed with this pattern.

This is a tried and true pattern for me. I love making long lasting classic pieces with it.

Great pattern! Will definitely make it again!

This is the BEST pattern if you are new to making button up shirts. I had never made anything with buttons, a collar, or cuffs, but now I feel confident enough to make all of the other shirts I have on my make list! I got a little bit confused at how to attach the collar stand, but after looking at it for a few minutes, I finally figured it out.

The pattern and tutorial/instructions are very clear, with loads of images. It's been well-thought out and easy-to-follow. There are a lot of steps, but it's worth the time in the end. I learned a couple of new tricks and tried a few things I've not encountered before, which is always rewarding.
I did have to lengthen it for my long torso and had helpful feedback from a question I asked of the pattern designer to better fit the next one I make!

Such great instructions for a complicated garment. Really nice insides.

I think its a great pattern. The instructions are very clear and useful. The sewalong on the blog ist helpful, too. The fit is perfect for me, I did not change anything

Instructions are pretty long and really involved, though understandably – separate sections appear in the pattern for each of the collar and sleeve options, which make you jump from section to section to find the bit of instruction you should be following. The shirt is made entirely with french seams, which makes the guts of the shirt lovely and clean. Version B’s neckline is quite tricky to make, I wasn’t able to make it perfect on the inside, yet it’s totally passable from the outside. The placket design is a tad too long for my taste, on a next version I’ll shorten the placket maybe 5-10cm. I’d advise this pattern only for the more experienced or the more adventurous. Some expertise in making garments is definitively a must, at least some training in topstitching and fabric handling to get a smooth insertion around the neckband and placket. Be on the lookout for the changes in seam allowance throughout the pattern.

This pattern has a lot of ease, so make sure to check the finished garment measurements when choosing your size.

I found the sew-a-long for this pattern on the Hey June blog very helpful.

Really easy pattern with clear instructions, great for anyone who is just getting into more complicated sewing projects.

Good instructions make this an easy to construct blouse.

I love the popover and the sew along on the blog was really helpful. I think I'd size down next time, but I haven't made another yet, unfortunately!

Outstanding pattern! I need to make more!

Made extra small but took about 3cm off the sleeve length (as usual) and might shorten length slightly (I'm 160cm / 5'3" tall). I love the fact the pattern uses French seams as standard. Rolled up sleeves make it a versatile trans-seasonal staple. PDF went together well. Instructions were detailed and excellent. Fit is great.

Recommended for everyone! Particularly those with broad shoulders, as I have heard comments that they found the Cheyenne to be a little bit wide for them.

Lots of steps, but really easy to follow!

Great pattern, I will be making more!

If you're reading this and haven't bought Cheyenne yet, stop what you're doing and go buy it. Now. Seriously. This pattern is amazing. The instructions are so clear and easy to follow, the fit is marvellous, and there are endless options for this pattern... from sweet floral tunics to plaid flannel comfort, Cheyenne is bound to be your new favourite shirt. I'm making two more right now.

The pattern was so well made, and my finished garment is beautiful, french seams and all! The fit for me was a little big so I took in the side seams from wrist to hem, and after it was finished I ended up shortening the front hemline so it has a shirt length front and a tunic length back. Even though it looks tricky, the pattern was so thorough that I never felt lost.

Hey June has great patterns are easy to print and assemble. Instructions are very clear

Another fantastic Hey June pattern.

This pattern is great! I learnt a new way of sewing the placket (much easier than other methods that I have done before). I think it runs rather large, next time I might make a S for a closer fitting garment. I don't think this is an issue with the pattern but rather a personal preference (i have the same with the Biscayne Blouse). The only change was to shorten the placket.

The drafting from Hey June is so incredibly perfect. All of the pieces for the Cheyenne fit together flawlessly, and the instructions held my hand through making my first collared shirt. I'll definitely make this again in the other view, which I thought would be too hard with that collar, but now I don't feel so intimidated.

I love this pattern! I love the clean lines and simple design. It's a detailed pattern with lots of steps and pieces, but the end result is great. A confident, intermediate seamstress would be able to make one!

Adrianna makes this sophisticated pattern easy. Try it if you haven't!

Per usual, Adrianna's instructions are on-point and made putting this pattern together and sewing it up a breeze.

Great pattern! Even if you have never made a collar or a placket - you can do it with the help of Adrianna's perfect instructions.

I loved this pattern. It was challenging because I had never done a collar, collar stand, placket etc. But I learned so much and I am so happy with the product. People can not believe I made this.
