Pauline Alice - Vera Shirt
About the Vera Shirt
Vera is one of the more recent Pauline Alice patterns. It was released alongside the Romero trousers and shorts, and together they make a beautiful ensemble. It is a relaxed fit shirt with a tailored collar, with some soft gathers at the back neckline. It has a modern asymmetrical shape - longer in the back – and rounded hem edges. It has desirable side openings, which are essential for accessing pockets, and doing a French tuck. The short sleeves have a lovely button tab detail. This is perfect with shorts, pants, or a slimline skirt. While it is styled here for summer, it would also be a great over-shirt in winter.
For your Vera shirt consider lightweight fabrics such as cotton lawn, linen, viscose, tencel, crepe or poplin. Cloth Edit also recommends our organic hemp and cotton.
This pattern is for sizes 34-48 (Bust: 80cm - 108cm; Waist: 62cm - 90). It is an oversized pattern though. See the image of the back of the pattern. For example, the finished bust measurement for the size 48 is 157cm (62”).
Level of Difficulty
