Although we do make buttondown dress shirts for guys, we tend not to love the way that dress shirts look on curvier women—they always seem a bit too tight to too loose or even both at the same time.
Fabric that is “bias cut” is cut diagonally across the fabric so that the grain runs at a 45 degree angle.
These blouses can also be made from the most gorgeous of our woven silks and wools—the result is crisper and much more formal than a knit, but still has all of the great qualities that we associate with knits.
This piece is pictured in a sleeveless version, but all of our blouses can be made sleeveless, with cap sleeves, short sleeves, 3/4 sleeves, or long sleeves with any style of dress shirt cuff.
The second top has a large 1920s style collar and bloused cuffs with gathering.
The result is a feminine take on the dress shirt with an utterly soft and stretchy body and sleeves and a crisp collar.
This piece is one of our sportswear looks and is pictured with a silk tweed pencil skirt that we made—a piece like this is great for business or pleasure.
The top has a built in bowtie and cummerbund. The ties can be tied in a bunch of different ways.
We can get a over a hundred different colors of silk for this look.
Finally, the last few pics show one of our hoodie tops.
This blouse is cut from a gorgeous superfine wool menswear fabric.
The result is a gorgeous pullover that can be layered into all sorts of gorgeous outfits.
Most of the tops that we sell are part of a larger custom outfit. But if you are thinking of a top, contact me at email@example.com so that we can design something for you
