Orla Pattern by Tilly & The Buttons
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.
