Description

Paper Theory’s sewing patterns are printed onto premium 27gsm card which makes them luxurious and substantial to hold, but more importantly they will have longevity and not disintegrate with the wear and tear of use. The pattern is printed onto 60gsm paper and each style comes with a full step by step, instruction booklet printed onto 120gsm paper.

This pattern was made and printed in England on FSC certified card and paper by a printer who is registered with the Woodland Trust.

Techniques Involved
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.

Recommended Fabric
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.

Sizing Information
The pattern is available in sizes 6-28. All sizes are included with your purchase.
