Brown palm leaf smock top – I added the white piping around the neckline which I’m really pleased with.
The spotty square neck top is from the same pattern. I think this would have been better with drapier fabric because it kind of balloons out the back but its nice and cool to wear because it is the middle of summer in New Zealand!
Stretch for the brown top, cotton for the spotty.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
