Olya is a modern, loose fitting shirt with traditional details and a classic silhouette but features an unusual sleeve seam to give the design a twist. The simplicity of the style makes it easy to wear and it is designed to be a versatile wardrobe staple.
It has all the details of a traditional Oxford Shirt, with a two piece stand and collar, a front button placket, a back yoke with a box pleat and a barrel cuff with a tailored placket and double pleat at the wrist.
The cut of the sleeve is unlike a regular shirt and has no front armhole - yet does have a back armhole. This unusual geometric detail elevates the shirt into something that is interesting and design led whilst also providing some hidden shaping in the front yoke seams to accomodate your bust.
The Olya also comes with a separate dress pattern. No hacking or lengthening required. The dress finishes mid calf length with side splits and a tie belt.
