A wonderful example of how a great print fabric can add an extra layer of liveliness to a well-made pattern. A relaxed and gathered neckline lays in fine pleats. The width of the blouse with small side slits is drawn in with a tying band.


Sexy and still breezy as it drapes beautifully to hug the figure with batwing sleeves and narrow bands at the neckline. The lightweight printed fabric makes this dress incredibly light and wrinkle-free – a perfect piece for the travel case!


Ladylike pleats in front and a smooth look behind. These culottes are sewn with a breathable linen and are just right for hot days.


This wrap top has a lot of girlish charm when sewn in a sweet jersey print and also gets a soft touch from the tying bands attached in front. Transform it for a night out by styling it with a narrow pencil skirt and a pair of high heels.


Halter…tunic…one-shoulder – this dress is a bit of a genie! The long fabric strips at the bodice can twist and turn to give lots of style options. For more coverage, sew a companion bandeau
to pull on underneath.


This look is relaxed, though flexible to pair with high heels and gold jewellery for a quick transition to a look perfect for an evening drink. An American halter style neckline, an empire waistline and an asymmetric hem make this a versatile wardrobe addition.


High on the waist or lower on the hips…you decide. The elastic smocking at the waistband of this flattering skirt lets you adjust it to your liking and to fit your mood. Wear it as easily for a shopping trip as you would to cover-up at the pool.


A great choice for travel or relaxing on the sofa. These capris include a super-cozy elastic waist and soft bands at the hems for all activities calling for absolute comfort.


Make a fashion statement in this jumpsuit sewn with an exotic printed jersey. The asymmetric bodice draws in beautifully at the waistline and the trouser legs let a slash of skin peek through the knee-high slits.
