// Inspired by all things painterly, the Paint Dress + Top is a year-round sculptural statement! Paint showcases a playful voluminous silhouette and raglan sleeve, gathered at the neckline and cuff. Options are available for a cuffed full length sleeve, or an elasticated short sleeve which is designed to sit at the bicep. The pattern can be cut as a dress, finishing at mid-calf, or as a top, finishing at low hip. Paint features simple construction, a bound neckline with centre-back closure, side seam pockets and a deep turned back hem to complete the look. Paint’s generous blousy fit is a dream for pairing with sandals on hot summer days, and layering up with merino and leggings for cooler months. #TFSPaint

We recommend referring to both the garment measurements and the body measurements when selecting a size, regardless of what size you wear in ready-to-wear clothing. This is not a close fitting style. A hand made garment is a considerable investment and we always recommend sewing a toile (sample garment) in a calico fabric (or similar) prior to cutting your final cloth. This will ensure you have the opportunity to make any alterations in length or fit to the pattern using an inexpensive fabric. Sewing a toile requires additional time, but we consider this time well spent.
