Wrap dresses are incredibly flattering to every figure and a look that transcends fashion trends. The special touch on this blouse dress is the sporty decorative bands at the shoulder and sleeve cuffs as well as the pleat details along the waistline of the skirt panel.


It doesn’t get much more seventies than this! The blouson jacket is sewn with babycord, includes a tie at the neckline and leather buttons down the placket for an absolute on-trend wardrobe choice. The waist hem is finished with a pre-made cuff fabric.


Look no further for your next easy sewing project! This shirt with the faux wrap and a flat, wide V-neckline is the answer.


Short and sweet. Showcase beautiful legs to grab full attention with this A-line skirt in imitation snakeskin leather. The miniskirt hemline finishes about one hand width above the knees, the top sits along the hips and gets texture in front with patch pockets and tabs. The cut is one that works just as well with leather, denim or tweed – with or without pockets …


Mustard yellow is the perfect color for autumn. This crêpe blouse is extra charming with its A-line silhouette punctuated by raglan sleeves, wide cuffs and radiant pleats at the neckline.


A modern dandy look with a nostalgic touch to get you noticed. The corduroy waistcoat includes slightly gathered pocket flaps. The back panel gets a bit of pop with a necktie print fabric. For a look on the sporty side, sew it all in the same fabric.


These relaxed slip-on trousers are elegant and comfortable – especially sewn in this necktie print. The wide, elastic waistband is finished with a tying band accent. Style tip: Shorten the length by a few inches as the cut is also a fantastic one for a culottes version.


This babycord in the look of a ribbed velvet embodies the two on-trend fabrics. The 7/8-trousers in this fabric also have a light stretch for maximum comfort. The waistband is accented with a metal ring and the hem has a sewn-on petersham trim finish.


The silk blouse with a snakeskin print is tailored to shape the wide, blouson-style silhouette with casings at the hem and 3/4 sleeves. Style tip: Wear it over a fine turtleneck for extra warmth on cooler days and for a fresh look.


This striking waistcoat bodice dress with its plunging neckline is worn beautifully paired with a sheer blouse underneath. The bodice includes darts at the bustline and a slightly raised waist for a feminine shape. The waistband is accented with gold buttons and a pair of faux flap pockets.
