Tahi is a two-piece pattern - a woven skirt and a knit shrug that are great worn individually or together!
The Tahi skirt takes inspiration from 1940's designs,featuring assymetric angled panels on the front, a lapped zipper at the centre back, and a slim waistband that sits at the natural waist and fastens in the centre back with a button.
Make the Tahi skirt in a slim A-line cut, or choose flared panels on one side at the front for added drape detail. Prefer simpler skirts? There's a basic slim A-line version of the Tahi skirt to make as well. All three versions of the Tahi skirt can be made in knee-length or maxi-length, and either lined or unlined.
The Tahi shrug also nods back to the 1940's, with its open front, curved hems, and set-in sleeves. There are four sleeve variations to choose from - a short sleeve that puffs out slightly then gathers into a wide band, or a classic narrow sleeve with a lightly-gathered sleeve head that can be made in short, 3/4 or full length. A narrow band around the hem of the Tahi shrug gives an easy, tidy finish.
With a slim fit and shaped side seams, the Tahi shrug is designed to sit well over dresses, blouses and close-fitting tops. A wonderfully versatile garment!
Tahi is suitable for all seasons. Make the knee-length skirt in a tweed with lining, and the shrug with long sleeves in a wool knit for a winter outfit. Or use a cotton or rayon for the skirt and a lace knit for a short-sleeved version of the shrug for summer.
