SUMMER CLASSICS: SIZE AND FIT GUIDE

SUMMER CLASSICS: SIZE AND FIT GUIDE

This year for summer classics we explore new cuts, colours and fabrics bringing you our most considered collection to date. 

Having worked in our Fitzroy store and understanding common fit issues we design to make online shopping easier. Little tricks like elastic, pleated sleeves, smocking, raglan sleeves and drop sleeves not only look great but help take away the guesswork when it comes to finding the perfect fit. 

Our dresses open up around the hips to help with fit so it's best to go off your AU top/blouse size when reading the numerical comparisons below.

This collection is fitting very true to size and uses blocks and cuts from previous seasons.

The collection will be launching Sunday the 18th of September at 8pm.
