We're happy to now be stocking Paper Theory sewing patterns!

These fresh, simple patterns with a modernist flavour are designed and printed in the UK on FSC certified paper and card by a printer who is registered with the Woodland Trust.

Olya is a relaxed, loose fitting shirt with traditional details and a classic silhouette but features an unusual sleeve design with a grown on front yoke.

Olya is easy to wear and designed to be a versatile wardrobe staple with longevity.

Techniques: It has all the details of a traditional Oxford Shirt, with a two piece stand and collar, a front button placket, a back yoke with a box pleat and a barrel cuff with a tailored placket and double pleat at the wrist.
The cut of the sleeve is unlike a regular shirt and has no front armhole - yet does have a back armhole. This unusual geometric detail elevates the shirt into something that is interesting and design led whilst also providing some hidden shaping in the front yoke seams to accommodate your bust.

Skill Level: 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.

Recommended fabrics: The pattern was designed for medium weight fabrics like Cotton, Linen and Flannel. You can choose to make it in 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.

The pattern envelope contains UK sizes 6-28 (US 2-24, EU 34-56)

PLEASE NOTE: The printed version does not come with the dress pattern - this is part of the PDF version only (which you can buy at the Paper Theory website)
