NEW Pattern – Silva Shirt Jacket
April 8, 2014
Introducing our newest pattern, the Silva Shirt Jacket. This relaxed, collarless style can be worn as either a jacket or shirt. It features three quarter length sleeves, a curved hem edge with raw edge binding on neck, centre front, hem and sleeve edges that, over time, creates a fringed detail. The Silva Shirt Jacket has been designed to fit neatly across the shoulders giving it a slim and flattering fit. A perfect trans-seasonal garment, it’s best made up in light to medium weight linen, lightweight wool and silk crepe de chine and double georgette. Not suitable for stiff or thick fabrics.
The Silva Shirt is now available in both hardcopy and print at home/print copy shop versions. All sizes (AUS 8,10,12,14 and 16) are included in the pattern along with sewing instruction booklet featuring colour photos.

Remember Sheryl from this post? She was home earlier in the year to visit family and friends and popped in to visit us. What a treat to finally meet her in person! While she was in the store, I showed her our first sample of the Silva Shirt Jacket, explaining that we hadn’t quite finalised the sewing instruction booklet but it would be released very soon. Sheryl couldn’t wait that long so we traced it out for her and explained the process of how the pattern went together. Within a few weeks of being back in Provence she emailed us these images of her finished Silva Shirt Jacket. These images show the exact effect the raw edge binding gives to this simple shirt jacket. Worn as a shirt or jacket, this pattern is versatile and easy to make!
