The Wing Blouse started life as a completely different garment. After turning it around in my mind, I realised I wanted to experiment with gathering the shoulder section and it all went from there.
The Wing Blouse was draped directly on to the mannequin, which allows for real manipulation of the fabric and form, it was so much fun to do. I am super happy with the result:
It is the kind of top that easily dresses up or down. It has the deepish ‘V’ neckline that flatters most figures, gentle gathers which soften the shoulder line. Dramatic ‘wing’ panels used to shape the back and cause the sleeve to cowl behind the blades of your shoulders. The crinkly gauzy linen it is cut from, is light and breezy, yet with enough structure and drape to work with the style perfectly. The variegated colours which are reminiscent of t-shirts and denim, give the linen a modern edge and match back to other colours in your wardrobe easily.
Colours: Thunder is charcoal colourway, Navy is blue colourway, Nickel is silver colourway.

Light weight breezy linen with a beautiful structure, not at all see-through, due to the variegated colours reminiscent of denim and the grey marl of a classic t-shirt.
