Lorica Shirt

Level medium

After the success of the Matera Collar, I was carried away by the idea of creating a new extravagant pattern. It is made up of puffed sleeves with cuffs fitted, a Peter Pan collar, and an elastic braid with loops. Important: Note that the style of the shirt is very loose.


What you will find in this pattern:

  • Gatherings

  • Puffy sleeves

  • braid with elastic button loops.

Sizes: 6 - 22 see this guide!

Technical Sheet:

  • ​The pattern includes seam allowances of 1.5 cm.

  • Available in US Letter and A4 formats.

  • The ease is 2 cm at the waistline, 4 cm on the hips line, and 4 cm at the bust line.
