tOrla Shift Top pattern by Tilly and 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.

Choose from full length or cropped sleeves with a subtle pleat at the shoulder. Keep it understated with the plain neckline version, or add the adorable snowdrop collar.

Like all Tilly and the Buttons sewing patterns, Orla includes jargon-busting instructions, helpful sewing tips, and colour photos showing you each step – making it easy for you to create gorgeous clothes you can be proud to say you made yourself.
