ABOUT

Description

The Leila Shirt is a loose fitting shirt that feels simple and elegant. This cut features a very dropped shoulder with an exaggerated roomy fit around the body, full sleeves with an extra long placket and back gathering details.

It’s the perfect piece to wear in warm weather, giving extra breathability while still being a modest cut. It also layers up beautifully in the winter with warm thermal polo necks. This style relies so much on its drape so it’s preferable to choose a particularly special fabric. Combine that with a neat finish, this piece will be a stylish classic to cherish for years.

Skill level: Intermediate.

Sizing: Sizes 4 - 28 (with PDF Layers)

For Body Measurements & Finished Garment Measurements, click here.

Amazing service

I recently emailed Maaike to ask if she would recommend this pattern being made from the chunky cotton knit and she responded promptly and gave great advice. It was so convenient to be able to have the pattern printed in A0 size too.
