I posted this message in the Plus Size forum as well, but thought I would ask here -- does anyone know of a pattern number that would be similar. I would love to sew this pattern but it goes to a size 16 and I'm a 20. Thanks!

What's your actual measurements? I'm technically larger than the pattern, but it still works just fine for me. It all depends on the kind of fabric you use and how you prefer to wear your shirts. The Renfrew has a little positive ease, so if you prefer negative ease in your shirts (like me), you can still make the pattern work. I sometimes have to take out of ton of ease when I make up the pattern in a really stretchy knit.

Keep in mind that Sewaholic's sizing is comparable to RTW sizes, not the typical Big4 pattern sizes - her 16 is a 41" bust, 35" waist.

Thank you both; that's helpful info. I did not check the actual measurements. Maybe I'll give it a try!
