A gorgeous pretty-quirky style, perfect for light or medium weight drape-y fabrics like crepe, rayon, silk twill, charmeuse, tencel, viscose or even a silk jersey.
Semi-fitted Dress or Blouse has a gently shaped center back seam, front & back bodice panel seams, half darts, a slightly dropped waist seam and a concealed front button closure.
Neckline is a scooped 'U' shape with a simple banded collar. Add the optional fluted ruffle to the center front; and choose between a classic cap or a fluted cap cleeve. Dress has a gentle A-Line flare, and finishes below the knee with a narrow hem; blouse features a deep doubled hem band to finish at the hip. Wear these pieces for a great daytime look: team the blouse with your favorite cropped jeans, a chic pencil skirt, or slouchy wide-legged linen pant; wear the dress as-is for a modern daytime outfit, or add a belt for a retro-fabulous look.
