$25.99

Dress it up or down, this boxy top or dress is going to be an essential wardrobe addition. The front pleat detail is enough to make this design stand out. The simple rouleaux loop-back neck closure reflects the simplicity of the silhouette.

Suitable fabrics – Light to medium weight woven cottons such as poplin, chambray or dress weight denims. Crisp linens, needlecord, lightweight wools. If you are a confident dressmaker you could use tencel, tencel linen, and laundered linen.
