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. (we were expecting have a full restock of this wonderful fabric ready for spring, however Covid-19 restrictions have delayed our shipment. Hopefully by the end of September 2021 we'll be good to go)
The neckline is bias bound that continues on to make a cute back tie closure.
