Dana Dress & Blouse
Loose-fitting and comfy yet still stylish and put-together, the Dana Dress is a versatile staple. She features a V-neckline, easy-fit loose shape, delicate tie belt, patch pockets, elbow length sleeves and a covered button placket, for a modern and minimal look. As well as the dress variation, Dana can be cut short into a hip-length or waist-length blouse. The Blouses look great tucked into the Kate Skirt, or worn cropped with the Camille Trousers. There is so much mix and match potential!
Styled with a chunky necklace or statement earrings, Dana will take you from the office into the evening and onto the weekend with ease.
Kate Dress, Shirt & Skirt
With dress, shirt and skirt options, Kate is an incredibly versatile three-in-one pattern with loads of outfit potential. The Kate Dress features a neatly fitted bodice with darts, covered button placket, collar and collar stand. The short sleeves are finished with turn-up cuffs, and the below-the-knee-length panelled skirt features slits in both the front and back sides for that little bit of sass. She closes with an invisible side zip. The Kate Shirt has a looser fit with no waist darts, and the Skirt variation features a narrow waistband.
Perfect for meetings, meals out or just meandering around the park, Kate is ready to go with you wherever your week takes you.
Camille Jumpsuit & Trousers
Camille is the ultimate chic jumpsuit with three beautiful variations. With a wrap bodice, waistband and elegant wide leg, the two Jumpsuit options are ready to make a statement, whilst the Trousers variation is perfect for pairing with the Edie, Dana and Kate tops.
Variation 1 was designed for office power dressing, with a sleek tailored sleeve and smart vibe, whilst variation 2, featuring a floaty, fluted sleeve, is perfect for dressing up for weekend weddings and fun evenings out. The wide legs are flattering with simple pleat details and must-have pockets. All variations close with a centre back invisible zip.
No Work To Weekend collection would be complete without a mac. The Anna Coat is a classic-style mac, with beautiful large lapels, epaulettes, pockets, back vent and a tie belt. The simplicity keeps it wearable whilst also making it a surprisingly quick coat to sew. Pairing gorgeously with all the other patterns, Anna is the perfect finishing touch to your capsule wardrobe.

What is an eBook?
