The Tunic Top is perfectly paneled and great for color blocking! It features a boat neckline, short sleeves, and loose fitting silhouette and it looks great paired with leggings or a skirt.
This classy Scoop Neck Dress has a banded scoop neckline and feminine silhouette. This dress has an interesting sleeve construction that gives the armholes a neat detail. You could wear this dress in the day with some cute sandals, or dress it up for a date night!
The Flounce Skirt is flowy and beautifully draped. It has a great gathered waist band and front flounce. It is paired with the “Long Sleeve Blouse”: – a classic button-up shirt with a modern twist. We love the saddle sleeves and the perfect collar for popping.
This is a flattering 1950s style Dart Dress . It features many exposed darts which add structure to the dress. You can omit the sleeves, or sew the dart on the inside for a different look. We love this form fitting dress and think it would look great sewn in a print or solid fabric.
Here is the V-neck top which has a plunging V neckline. The yoke and long attached bands that tie at the back are great! This top pairs perfectly with a nice pair of trousers or a sleek pencil skirt.
This collection features many figure flattering designs, from form fitting cocktail dresses to comfortable tops and skirts. We love the nautical feel of this collection and think that any of these pieces would work great in any wardrobe. If you want a quick and easy weekend project try making the V-neck top or the Flounce Skirt, it has step-by-step instructions on how to sew. Or if you feel like a challenge and want something elegant we suggest sewing the Scoop Neck Dress .
