The ease of a knit T with the structure of
a woven fabric? Sign us up for these fab
styles, designed for light to medium-weight
woven fabrics...go fluid with crepe, rayon
challis, charmeuse, georgette, and chiffon;
choose more structure with classic cotton
shirting, linen, chambray, poplin or pique.
Relaxed-fit, pull-on top and dress have
French darts, back yoke with keyhole &
button, and deep top-stitched hems.
Top has optional detachable trim; dress
has optional seam pockets. Choose a
classic T-shirt-style short sleeve or one
that goes j-u-s-t below the elbow, then
decide between a ‘V’ or a boat-neck
for your very own one-of-a-kind piece.
These modern classics work anytime...
try the T-shirt over slim cropped or long
fluid pants, or team it with your favorite
jeans; the dress works as the perfect
throw-on-and-go piece for everyday
easy dressing. Obviously these simple
but chic styles are perfect made up in
day-time fabrics, but consider making
these in more glamorous evening
fabrics for a modern after-hours look.
