Paper Theory Olya shirt
Available in sizes 6 - 28
The Olya shirt is a modern, loose-fitting shirt with traditional details and a classic silhouette but features an unusual sleeve design with a drown on front yoke.
This pattern was designed for medium weight fabrics like Cotton, Linen and Flannel. Light weight fabrics like Crepe de Chine, Viscose or Georgette. It would also make up well in some heavier fabrics like Corduroy, Drill and light weight Denim. Knit or stretch fabrics like Jersey are not recommended.
Buttons: 9x15mm buttons are needed to complete the shirt. Interfacing: sizes 6-18 require a 70x50cm piece. Sizes 20-28 require a 75x55cm piece. One regular size spool of thread (100m) is enough to complete the shirt.
The pattern is suitable for an advanced sewist - however there are sixty step by step instructions to guide you through the process so it would be the perfect project for an intermediate sewist looking to stretch their ability and learn some more classic sewing skills.
