Easily dressed up or down, Cora pairs beautifully with your smartest tailored trousers for work, as well as your comfiest jeans for a weekend at home. It can be worn tucked in or loose to suit your style.

The Cora Top features a V-shaped neckline finished at the front with a unique (and quite magical!) pleat detail.

The back also sports a pleat, which cleverly creates the appearance of a yoke, and keeps the shoulders that little more fitted.

The grown-on sleeves are comfy and simple to construct, whilst the high-low hem is kept fun and interesting with shallow angled side slits.

There are no darts or gathers required for the Cora Top, which as well as making for a speedy project also means this pattern is ripe for bold, large-scale prints.
