Marais is our elevated essential: a collared shirt showcasing a dramatic back with three sleeve options. Marais features our fly-front placket, bust darts, patch pockets and a back yoke with cross-over pleat detailing.

All views come with a cropped front & shortened back hem option.

View A is our classic sleeve Marais with double pleat detailing at the 2-button cuff.

View B is our showstopper with billowing bishop sleeves & pleating to the 3-button cuff.

View C is our modern take on the puffed sleeve with pleating at the shoulder and cuff creating its signature volume.

This pattern is named after Le Marais in Paris, a place that both Lesley & Jacqui travelled in different decades in their 20’s. 

The Marais Collared Shirt is designed as a premium garment that is effortlessly stylish and mirrors the vibe of its namesake.

About our PDF sewing patterns

Our PDF sewing patterns are layered, which means you can choose to only print the size/s that you need. 

Important: We recommend printing ONLY the size/s you need.  This is particularly important to allow for a clear view of the detailed pleating notches on our sleeves when the PDF pattern is printed out.

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to select your layers & print our patterns to their correct scale.  More details on printing are included in the Instruction Booklet.

Our PDF patterns are designed to print at home on A4 (8.3" x 11.7") or Letter (8.5" x 11") paper sizes.  An A0 file is also included (33.1" x 46.8").

    All patterns include a fully photographed step-by-step instruction booklet.
