    Fabric Recommendations

    This style works beautifully in a woven fabric, approximately 80-160gsm in a light weight linen, cotton, silk or viscose. The twisted sleeve with gathers into the armhole can become quite bulky if the fabric is too this so be mindful of this when choosing something. 

    This pattern also uses a contrast fabric for the back binding, see Notions below for more.
