Bring back the swinging sixties with the Mod Square Collection! Make a checked sheath dress, a white leather biker jacket, or perhaps a graphic jersey tunic, all with a funky retro style. With these fun outfits, why not pour some good old-fashioned cocktails, give yourself a kooky beehive and cat-eye make-up, and throw a sixties themed bash?
The monochrome colours, stripes and checked fabrics used for these patterns bring the sixties’ mod theme to life, giving them a bold, modern edge. The Shrunken Blazer is a classic design and the Petite Leather Trousers should be a wardrobe essential! For something more unusual, the Cross Panel Dress is a statement garment for that special occasion when you want to make an entrance!
The Editor’s Pick from this collection is the Mod Sheath Dress pattern. Sheath dresses are perfect for showing off bold prints, like black and white check, and the three quarter sleeves and crew neck of this design make it so versatile. This dress even has handy pockets so you can leave your purse behind when you go out on the town!
