Olya is a relaxed, loose fitting shirt with traditional details and a classic silhouette but features unusual and innovative style lines. Olya is easy to wear and designed to be a versatile wardrobe staple with longevity.
There are two patterns included in the package: One is for the shirt and the other is for a Dress version.
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.
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.
The dress finishes mid calf with splits at the sides. There is also an optional belt pattern included to cinch the dress in at the waist if desired.
