Our brand new shape for our jersey lovers is Sweeney! She's the reversible double neckline of the Sybil dress, with the soft gathered skirt of a Winnie! Genius, right?!
FEATURES: Sweeney is made from the most beautiful heavy jersey with a great amount of hold and beautiful drape. She features a lovely gathered skirt with side pockets, a nice shaped bodice and we have added a beautiful short t-shirt length sleeve for summer. Sweeney is the perfect comfy dress for work but also works so well for lazy days at home. Sweeney is the perfect base for winter layers as she has a smooth bodice! We will pair ours with our stockings and boots, Primrose and Clementine cardies, chuck on a cute belt and you're good to go. Sweeney is lightweight for travel and will work for occasions too. We love her as a piece we can wear for years to come, as she is timeless and fits perfectly on a wide range of sizes. The smooth bodice is completely shaped to hug your curves and boy does this make a difference on a bigger bust. We of course have side pockets in the skirt and the softly gathered shape does not accentuate the hips due to our clever placement gathers in the front and back but not on the sides.
HOW TO WEAR: Perfect for those lovely days heading into the warmer weather, as Sweeney is a comfortable jersey fabric with firm stretch and a lovely screen print. Team her with your favourite pair of colourful clogs or sandals, a gorgeous brooch and you're all set for a perfect Spring day! The weight of the jersey we use for this style is the same as our Jenny Kismet and plain Bree tops. We love the heavy drape and feel of the stretch which is firm but gives over time. We also love the extra body the print gives this fabric making it a nice heavy fall that skims the hips and fits in the bodice with good stretch. The Sweeney neckline is the same as the Sybil dress and top, which is fully reversible with a higher and lower side which gives you great options to wear.
FABRIC: 100% cotton stretch jersey. Heavy enough to not cling, but light enough to be cool and comfy.
PRINT: Backyard Blooms by Hayley Wills. grass green base with beautiful vibrant tones in the floral featuring Banksia and Bottle brush.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Hayley Wills is a self taught visual artist who lives in Brisbane and is passionate about developing vibrant colour palettes. We love Hayley's beautiful florals and this fabric is inspired by her Banksia and bottlebrush artworks. Hayley deconstructed her artwork painting each element in a beautiful range of colours that coordinate perfectly with our knitwear. We then layered each individual floral element in the style of the original to create the fabric yardage.
