The return of a very old favourite! These fun tops are utterly unique - a play on complimentary and contrasting pattern and colour. Each one is handmade from 3 vintage fabrics that are often only found in small pieces or remnants from cutting other garments in my studio. These treasured materials never goes to waste and here is the pretty result!
They are a beautifully relaxed yet tailored shape that looks great worn loose simply over jeans, tailored pants or a straighter style skirt. Or tuck them in to a full skirt or wide legged bottoms to show off the waist more. With so many colours to pick up on you'll find endless and surprising combinations in your own wardrobe or one of our Connie Skirts makes a perfect pairing.
FEATURES - Cap sleeve - Slightly scooped neckline - Bust dart for shape and comfort across chest, even on bigger busts - Subtly drawn in at side waist - Gathers under yoke create flow over the tummy - Gently curved back to avoid being boxy or voluminous
One of a kind, ethically and locally handmade in my studio and with professional Makers nearby, all in Marrickville. Decolletage and sleeves made from genuine vintage fabric by Australian icon and artist Ken Done. All fabrics in mint condition.
Most pieces are 100% Cotton though some fabrics may include a rayon or polyester component. Cold hand wash or gentle machine wash on delicates cycle inside a washbag using a mild phosphate free detergent. Dry on a hanger in the shade and there's probably need to iron.
Sizing is average to generous and consistent with our brand. Model with long hair is taller than average with small bust wearing S. Model with short hair is taller than average with average bust wearing M.
