Paper Sewing Pattern.

If there is only one shirt in your wardrobe, it should be the Skyline!

Its cut is timeless, straight but not loose, the length is perfect to be worn outside of as well as slipped into trousers. The Skyline shirt stands out from the crowd because of its very Fauve details, stitched pleats on the front, collar, back and cuffs, but also by its duo of collars - classic and Peter Pan, and the possibility of sewing an opening in the back, a small triangle of skin that is shown off without showing off too much. With this pretty pattern, you can make the perfect "white shirt", but colour and print versions also work very well.


Sewing Level: Intermediate, the technical aspects are the pleating, collar and cuff assembly, button placket and rip stop sleeve slit.


Size: The pattern goes from a UK size 6 (34) to 24 (52).

The fit is true to size, follow the body and finished garment measurement charts.



Emilie, Amanda and Cathy are wearing Skyline in UK size 8 (36) and Vanina in size 20 48.
