- our latest Tessuti pattern! About ten weeks ago we put up this photo (below) of Helga on Instagram
Helga (the customer - not the shirt ;-) had taken her pattern - modified to suit her shape - from an original Silva design that she'd purchased in one of her boutiques many, many years ago. And this shirt was the beautiful result. After publishing the photo, we had SO many requests for the pattern that we decided to answer the call. So here she is, named after our inspiration (of course!).
This oversized shirt is a winning combination of loose, comfortable and
stylish. The pattern includes two options - collarless (View A)
and mandarin-style collar (View B).
Features include a swing back and
side seams that angle to the front and finish with a clever stepped hem.
The shirt can be easily dresssed up or down, and looks great with both skinny or wide legged pants. Suitable fabrics for the Helga Shirt
include linen, cotton, lightweight wool, wool crepe and firmer silks
(e.g. dupion and taffeta).
Our Helga Shirt pattern comes with all sizes (AUS sizing) XXS, XS, S, M, L and XL included.
Due to the width of the back pattern piece, only sizes XXS, XS and S can be cut out on narrow width fabrics (112cm)
The pattern is now available
in both hardcopy and PDF print-at-home/copy shop versions and pattern includes Australian sizes XXS through to XL.
