Betty Shirt Possum Magic
This is a new shape we have developed for winter with a lovely 3/4 length sleeve and incredible detailing. We wanted a lovely shape to wear in soft fabrics as well as having a longer sleeve which is great for in-between seasons.
FEATURES: Betty features a well fitting bust with a great pleat detail in the back coming off the back yoke which allows for room in the shoulders so you should never feel restricted at the bust or across the back while wearing. She has a nice 3/4 sleeve length with panelled cuffs at the end of the sleeve and around the bottom hem to add weight to the hem. Some of her finer details include a traditional collar, generous button front (that doesn’t gape because we add just the right amount of buttons to hold perfectly at the bust) and a wonderful loose body to flatter all shapes and sizes. Bust darts make for a perfectly fitting bust line as well as allowing the shape to still come in at the waist for the perfect silhouette. Betty is sure to be a shirt for all occasions and you’ll love having her to wear on days where you want that effortless cool option.
HOW TO WEAR: Betty is the perfect work blouse, dressy and smart without any effort, and looks wonderful worn with jeans or shorts in summer for a bit of fun. She layers well in winter, and looks cute tucked into our Valentina, Penny or Sunset skirts or she can be worn out with Kenzie for a dressier work look. Wear Betty in a textured fabric like Broderie to combine with a great printed bottom like a Penny skirt in a large print or Valentina or Paige in a plain colour. Pop Betty under a blazer for work, as she is a nice loose fit without being shapeless. You can also leave her untucked and belt over the top as these lovely soft fabrics work well with a slightly cinched in waist. The options are endless!
FABRIC: 100% Bamboo. Lovely soft fabric with no stretch but great drape. We love the lightness of this beautiful fabric which is swishy but soft and layers so well.
PRINT: Possum Magic by Andrea Smith.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Andrea Smith is a Sydney based illustrator who specialises in paper cut artworks which she creates from paper she has painted with watercolour paints. This creates tones and textures that give the finished animals depth and colourful undertones. These Possums were created first in sketch form and then by free hand cutting around the shapes to layer and create the possums in full. We love Andreas process and love working with these amazing paper cuts to then create the fabric repeat.
