Tilly and the Buttons - Orla Shift Top

SEW A STYLISH SHIFT TOP

Ordering over the festive period? Please note that the office is shut from 1pm on Friday 23 December 2016 and will reopen on Monday 2nd January 2017. Orders placed during this period will be processed for dispatch on Tuesday 3rd January.

Orla is a semi-fitted shift top with delicate details offset by a modern exposed zip. Classic at first glance, a closer peek reveals a wealth of interesting design details to develop your sewing repertoire.

The bodice is shaped by curved French darts at the front, with contour and shoulder darts at the back for a great fit. The booty-shielding dipped hem is finished with a facing.

Choose from full length or cropped sleeves with a subtle pleat at the shoulder. Keep it understated with the plain neckline version, or add the adorable snowdrop collar.

Orla looks great over skinny jeans or leggings for every day, or with slim-fit trousers or tucked into a skirt for the office. The collar version makes a lovely layering top to wear under knitwear.

Like all Tilly and the Buttons sewing patterns, Orla includes jargon-busting instructions, helpful sewing tips, and colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.

PRINTED PATTERN - You’ll receive a gorgeous printed package in the post containing full scale pattern sheets and a colour instruction booklet. (Alternatively you can order the digital version to print and assemble at home.)
