Get a sophisticated look in these stylish ruffled jackets, slim skirts, and high-waisted trousers. The smart-casual patterns in the Greyscale Collection are great for the busy, professional woman, and shades of grey give them a contemporary edge. These designs are subdued for work but also have a few ruffles and abbreviated hemlines for a feminine feel.
The modern but simplistic style of these garments makes them ideal for everyday wear. There’s a modern take on classic pieces like the Suit Jacket and High Waist Trousers, and a super-snuggly Suit Coat, designed to keep you warm on your journey to work. Or go for a bolder look with the quirky Bolero – try making it in a brightly coloured fabric and you’ll really turn some heads!
The Editor’s Pick from this collection is the Ruffle Blouse pattern. An asymmetrical ruffle makes this otherwise plain blouse pop with flair! Pair it with a simple pencil skirt and tights for a smart-casual look or add some sparkly jewellery and high heels to dress it up for a night out.
