Cool and comfortable! This oversized shirt with batwing sleeves has an extra sophistication that comes from sewing it in a washed silk.

A chic combination of the stripes results in a relaxed shirt with an interesting flowing effect. This cut is also a great one for a breezy beach tunic, just adjust the pattern to lengthen it at the hem by at least 30 cm (apx. 12 inches)!

The details of this blouson jacket take patience and time and yet it is worth every minute of investment. The classic blouson in a college style captures trend with the golden zipper, colorful sewn-on shoulder yokes and zippered pockets.

So stylish! The striped satin in a retro-look adds a spicy touch to this blouson jacket with the narrow collar and elasticized hems. It can work well as a replacement for the blazer with classic outfits, also.

A perfect last-minute piece! The skirt with slits along both sides has a casing at the waistline and a contrasting colored cord to draw it together. It is a comfortable choice for styling with many options. And, it works with sneakers, too.

An extremely flexible maxi skirt – pair it with a sexy silk top and heels for a stunning party look, or with a blouse and wedges (as shown here) for the office or a walk in the city.

A cool and glamorous dress. The satin top features inlaid pleats at the neckline as well as along the banded sleeves and the skirt is sewn in a jersey. Both pieces come together at the waistline with an elastic casing – so the dress is not only incredibly comfortable, it also stays perfectly in place.

A dress? Yes, you have read correctly! The different prints of the fabrics (satin over jersey) gives the illusion of a two-piece style – though much more elegant since the blouse won’t untuck from the skirt and the streamlined look hugs the figure beautifully. Tip: The sturdier the jersey, the better it holds its shape.

The asymmetric fold comes together at the waistband on these extremely relaxed fit and roomy trousers. For those who prefer not to have the banded cuffs, simply sew the hems in place by hand.

Guaranteed to lengthen the look of the legs. The high waist of the pleated waistband jogger trousers creates the illusion of a stretch. For an office look, style them with a classic blouse and heels.

This dress
has a lot of great detail, though the sewing construction is not complicated. The faux wrap of the dress is an illusion of the overlapping bodice pieces that are held in place at the waistline with the elastic casing. It also looks great in a slightly shorter version as a top. A pair of leggings or leather drainpipe trousers are great for an office look and also are ideal for chilly days.
