Wear it as a fun two-piece top or solo: The sexy cold shoulder top with the gathered bustier panels and elastic sleeve ends is flattering to every figure. It is sure to bring a summer vibe from the first step in sewing!


Deep, inlaid pleats at the sleeve caps add a dramatic waterfall drape. Otherwise, the blouse with the teardrop slit neckline stays true to form – perfect for a richly printed fabric …


The button placket and cuffs are here, while the rest of the traditional shirt dress gets a full makeover. The collar is set further from the neck, the hem is asymmetric, the tying belt at the waistline has a faux sleeve touch and the classic poplin fabric is decorated with embroidered mini pineapples.


A first glance at these ankle-length trousers that follow the silhouette and have a striped elastic faux belt look like a simple crop look. A closer study reveals a sophisticated side seam with rounded slits at the hem.


Little surprises draw another look with unexpected details. Pleats in front and diagonal pockets italiennes shape the knee-length fashion highlight look with the sense of a pretty apron. A lace bodice with ruffles adds to the sophisticated deux-pièces effect to this dress.


Rather than a collar, this blouse get a bit of sizzle from a double row of ruffles and a tying band. The lace plastron lets a peek of sun-kissed skin shine through.


This month’s cover style is feminine and oh-so-comfortable. A deep V-neckline and narrow rows of ruffles decorate the sleeves of this blouse. The waistline gets definition from a self-belt.


This dress is pure summer romance. The delicate lace is reminiscent of cheerful hippie fashion. Gathers and batwing sleeves with a demure lining make it beautifully soft and feminine.


Breezy, super comfortable and still looking great when you pull this jumpsuit on. Bands of detailing along the yoke and sleeves are striking. The tying belt adds a finishing touch at the waistline.


A wardrobe must-have and a figure-shaper in one! Contrast edging and a shaping panel at the waistline accent toward the fitted peplum and make this blazer with the cropped sleeves one of our newest go-to favorites.
