Seriously...too gorgeous for words, this showstopping
shirt is designed for sheer, semisheer and lightweight
knit or woven fabrics with lots of drape...think bamboo,
rayon, modal or silk jersey for the knits and try crepe,
rayon challis, washed voile & floppy gauze for your
The wrong side of the fabric will show on the front of the shirt!
Semi-fitted shirt has a simple collar, front & back yokes
and a wrapped & draped front which closes with a
concealed button placket. Shirt is longer at the back,
and features side slits for ease of wear, plus long
shirt-style sleeves with a placket & two button cuff.
This one will be totally stunning in stripes (of course!)
but will be just as fabulous in chic solids or funky prints.
Wear your beautiful shirt tucked into a slim pencil skirt
for an elegant look; channel your inner Fashion Editor
with the front tucked in and the back left loose over skinny
jeans, or create a modern casual outfit with the shirt
worn loose over a straight-cut pant.
