Olya Shirt

Originally released alongside the Sewing Society Kit in July 2023, this series of two videos contains exclusive hints and tips for making the Paper Theory Olya Shirt.

These videos are perfect if you already own a copy of the Olya sewing pattern and the supplies to make it but would like some helpful guidance on sewing it up!

These videos don't replace the instructions that come with the pattern, instead Lauren shares her personal hints and tips that she finds useful to help you make a lovely garment.

The two videos have over 60 minutes of footage, sectioned out with time stamps/chapters for easy reference and navigation

The key construction steps are covered, including how to work with striped fabric and match stripes at key points, how to sew the hidden pockets, how to construct the unique sleeve, an alternative method for sewing the collar and much more!

The videos really hold your hand through working with stripes and getting them orientated for a professional finish.

Once you have placed your order, the video link will be included in your order confirmation email. The Olya Shirt PDF pattern is available directly from the Paper Theory website and you can make use of our pattern printing service to have it printed on A0 paper (see below).
