This tunic is a cool alternative to a dress. Wear it with a pair of narrow trousers and this off the shoulder blouse with the rounded lower hem is just as festive. The integrated fabric bands at the sleeve hems get a comfortable knot for a beautiful finish.

Admiring glances are guaranteed in this ombré maxi dress. It shines beautifully, especially in the backdrop location suite in Hotel Sofitel Munich. The style of the dress is one that is festive without hugging the shape. The flounce cascading over the shoulders is wonderfully fashion-forward. For a look that is less formal, the pattern can be adjusted to a midi length and be sewn with a softly draping cotton, as well.

So perfect, that it is a choice that works for more than a party look … This unlined dress is sewn with a fine silk that feels incredibly supple against the skin and is wonderfully lightweight. The front flounce is sewn into the middle front seam without changing the straight-line design of the dress. The overcut shoulders with attached sleeves add another layer of luxury to the overall look.

Rather than a decolleté, this blouse with the knotted sleeve hems lets your shoulders get some sexy attention. To keep the blouse sitting beautifully, the upper sleeves include wide elastic bands. This style is one that is quite versatile for the office as well as for a garden party.

This classic dress is completely stunning with its asymmetric pleats cleverly placed to avoid extra flare and shape a dream waistline. The straps and the neckline are shaped to cover most styles of brassieres and accentuate perfectly.

Sexy and comfortable! This flattering tunic features asymmetric flounces and is sewn in a delicately flowing silk for a look that is as great for everyday wear with denim as it is for an evening out with a pencil skirt or tapered trousers. Slits in the sides let you adjust your comfort to casually tuck in the waist or let it drop.

These slightly flared hem trousers with the wide hip yoke are designed to sit perfectly on curves. Sewn in a softly stretching fabric, they are also extremely comfortable. If 7/8 trousers are not your style, just extend the pattern lines by the additional cm/inches needed to reach the desired length.

This statement dress is one for the times when you want all eyes drawn your direction. It is sewn with an elegant glittering jacquard. The plunging neckline and the pleats extend the shape for an hourglass silhouette. The wrap look creates a high slit for great flexibility for hitting the dance floor! Combine it fashionably with a wool shrug on cooler days.
