About

Shoulder Shirts™ help people with limited arm movement.

Shoulder Shirts™ got their beginning when my mother had rotator cuff surgery and I made her some shirts that released at the shoulders with velcro. Her physical therapist was so impressed he requested that I make them to sell for his patients.

My mother taught me to sew and I have been sewing for over 30 years now. I received training from my friend and mentor, Josie, a professional seamstress from Malta. She taught me to visualize and to “think about it” when I was creating and sewing. These shirts are specifically designed and created with care and love.

I am a legal assistant by day and a wife, mom, and shirtmaker by night!! All shirts are sewn individually by me or local seamstresses. (I have several local seamstresses that help me out and they have been a blessing as the need has increased for our shirts.)

We love creating something that will make your life better at a time when things seem overwhelming. We hope that your shirts will make things just a little bit easier in your life right now. Thank you and welcome to Shoulder Shirts™!!!

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Shoulder Shirts™ tend to run a bit large to accommodate braces and casts. The last picture in each listing is a size/measurement chart for that style of shirt. The last couple of measurements are the approximate actual circumferences and length of the shirts.

(I do not recommend ordering the next size larger than you normally wear without first checking these measurements.)

Care instructions

Shoulder Shirts™ are made primarily from polyester and/or cotton blends and knits; this allows for comfort and easy care while you are recuperating. However, for those who have asked for the more natural fabrics, we do have a few of cotton, rayon and other natural blends. Be sure to look for them. The shirts are machine washable; I recommend cold water wash and hanging or lying flat to dry. (Please note that the cotton fabrics may shrink a bit with the first washing; we have compensated for this with extra length on the shirts.)

Gift wrapping and packaging

If your Shoulder Shirt™ is a gift, we will include a personalized gift card. Be sure to leave the message you would like to be included in the "Note to Seller" section at checkout.

Custom and personalized orders

If you do not see a size in a fabric listed, please contact me to see if we have more fabric available. We have lots of additional fabrics and I can work with you to get something you will like and feel comfortable in during your recuperation. Shoulder Shirts™ goal is to make life easier during your difficult times.

We also have additional shirts available on our main site at www.ShoulderShirts.com Any shirt on that site can be brought over to Etsy as a custom order for you.
