DIY – Oslo multi-position stole

Borealis

Oslo is the perfect project to start if you have never sewn any garment. A few markers in the right places, straight seams…. that is all there is to it. Oslo is a stole/cape, with pointed edges. A fold creates the impression of a shawl collar on one side and a loose high-collar on the other side. You can wear Oslo opened (several possibilities) or closed with the button.
The file contains an illustrated instructions leaflet to sew your Oslo stole in one of 4 sizes (S, M, L and XL). There is no sewing pattern: the cut is really simple and explained in the leaflet.

Supplies

  • The fabric has to be identical on both sides – 240cm/95’’ x 110/43’’ or 140cm/55’’ wide
  • One 34mm/1.34’’ button
  • Matching thread

Suggested fabric

Choose a resistant, supple, medium- to heavy-weight woven fabric. Avoid thin fabrics that could tear at the buttonhole, and those that fray easily. As far as fibers are concerned, cotton or wool blends can be appropriate choices.
