Named Clothing - Stella Raglan Blouse & Dress
A vintage-style blouse and dress that are characterised by their raglan sleeves and low cut armhole creating a blouson shape. The dress has a classic feminine pussy bow collar and vent at the neckline, gathered at the waist and cuffs with elastic so although this is a smart looking dress, it is easy to pull on and go. It is lined apart from the sleeves so you can make it in a lightweight swishy fabric and it still be suitable for the colder months. The blouse features a triangular collar with traditional narrow blouse cuffs but with the option of two snaps for best fit (and ease of making!) It also fastens down the centre front with snaps.
