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 well loved design was to solve all those little niggles!
This beautiful dusty rose pink tone and the soft shape was inspired by the cool 80's icon Molly Ringwald! Wear it 'Breakfast Club' style with muted brown, olive and leather or with navy or black for a fresh modern look. We love staple pieces that offer everyday ease and versatility to your wardrobe whilst still being an interesting, stand alone colour.
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 flexible for both casual wear or work.
If you have our Lucy dress you'll 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 or waistband. 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 medium weight linen that's been pressed smooth in the photos here but looks great left natural for a more a organic, crumpled texture. Cold handwash or gentle machine wash on delicates cycle inside a washbag using a mild phosphate free detergent.
As always, handmade ethically in Sydney's Marrickville by a small business in limited edition numbers.
SIZING & MEASUREMENTS
Sizing is average to generous and consistent with our other garments. It fits the same as the teal, navy and black version and is slightly longer than the previous pink one.
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.
