The past year or so has been all about the sleeve - voluminous statement sleeves that take an otherwise simple top or dress and turn it into something special. And what we love is that it is a look that works for so many in a variety of fabrics.
Both Arna and Georgie have used this pattern to create beautiful wardrobe staples - if you visit us in store, you may very well see what I mean. Arna made a top which she pairs with jeans or a skirt, while Georgie created a gorgeous linen fabric dress version.
Top length: We've had feedback from some of our customers, and Arna agrees, that the length of the top is a little short. It hits right at the natural waist - so if you would like to make it a little longer, make sure you order extra fabric.
We braved the cold on a beautiful winter's morning a few weeks back to snap some images of Georgie in her most well worn 'work uniform' to date. In summer she throws it on with a pair of sneakers, while in winter Georgie has been wrapping up with boots, warm under layers and a cardigan or shawl if needed.
Georgie made a size 10 in our Maison Washed Linen Fabric - Chestnut. Her normal dress size is an 8 to a 10, and her bust measurements are 89cm and hips are 88cm.
The neckline is bias bound that continues on to make a cute back tie closure.
More details and sizing can be found if you link through to the Edie Dress & Top sewing pattern.

Hi Debi, thank you for the idea! We love that idea – we will look into that as a blog post or instagram post! Lets see what we can come up with! Best wishes the Miss Maude team!
Love this version of the dress with this linen. Heavy enough for all year round with layers. My only issue with sleeve volume is that you’re limited in what to wear for a coat or jacket – pairing a sleeve pattern with coat pattern options would be really helpful!
