Are you ever hunting for a top that isn’t tight but finishes at just the right spot on the waist so you don’t need to tuck it in but it’s not too loose and shapeless if you don’t? Well the intention behind this brand new design was to solve all those little niggles!
This colour was inspired by the gorgeous 80's icon Molly Ringwald! It's so feminine and flattering on most skin tones, maing a less stark option to a white basic in your wardrobe. Wear it 'Breakfast Club' style with muted brown, olive and leather or with navy or black for a fresh modern look.
The unique kite shape offers looseness across the shoulders, bust and tummy for an elegant yet relaxed look, which then slightly draws in to a flat front. The back has a softly billowing effect created by a little elastic along the bottom. This makes it ideal to wear over slim fitted bottoms like a straight or a line skirt, tailored pants, jeans or shorts. But it can also balance out a full or voluminous skirt without having to wear something tight on top. It’s a style that is super comfortable and versatile for both casual wear or work.
If you have our Lucy dress you might notice a similar cut to the neckline and sleeve.
It accommodates a variety of body shapes, including bust sizes and whilst being shorter than our other tops it isn’t a cropped style, finishing just on the hip bones. The model with red hair is tall with a small bust, fits a size 8 or a 10 and wears the 8-10 here. She also looks great and feels comfortable in the size up. The model with dark hair is average height with bigger bust wearing the 12-14 here.
They are made from a lightweight (but not sheer) linen that's been pre-washed for an organic, soft crumpled texture.
As always, handmade ethically in Sydney by a small business in limited edition numbers.
Cold handwash or gentle machine wash on delicates cycle inside a washbag using a mild phosphate free detergent.
SIZING & MEASUREMENTS
PLEASE NOTE: This pink linen version is slightly shorter than the other colours, just a natural variation that sometimes occurs from fabric to fabric. However as it has been pre-washed, there's no need to expect any shrinkage. Please do not wash in warm or hot water or tumble dry.
Sizing is average to generous and consistent with our other garments. To check your size, lay flat a favourite top and run a tape measure across the garment (not something stretchy) and compare your measurements to these below.
