The Schoolhouse Tunic features front and back pleats, 3/4-length sleeves with optional elastic gathering at the cuff, and an open bodice perfect for layering over your favourite camisole or tank.
Pauline Alice – Cami Dress
Classic, feminine and easy to wear, the Camí dress is perfect all year round.
The bodice is fitted with front and back waist darts. For a retro style, the full skirt is gathered and has inseam pockets. The dress is high-waisted and has full skirt for a typical 50’s silhouette. With its classic shirt collar, the Camí dress buttons on the front bodice from the waist up and has a side zipper for comfort.
The Avid Seamstress – The City Trousers
The perfect fit trousers – at last!
A slim shaped trouser – between skinny/cigarette shape – with easy to insert side pockets and an optional side slit at the hem. A narrow waistband with an invisible zip at the back makes the front of these trousers very flattering.
