Fabric & Style
Stunningly designed, this top has been manufactured with care and attention to detail in India in a crisp flat rayon with no give, it is dense enough to not be sheer or see through.. There are a combination of shapes here, from the deep V neckline there is a bib style panel both in the front and the back, the fabric below this panel is gathered so there is extra fabric over the tummy area, this is all built onto a rectangle kaftan style with no discerible sleeves. The side seam is a straight row of stitching 12cm in from the edge of the fabric, the seam stops 32cm from the shoulder to allow your arms to go through, and 23cm from the hemline.
Algarve is a print in all the blues inspired by Portugese tile patterns with a complementary border shown with the fabric being very thoughtfully used.
Fit & Function
My body shape really does not suit this style which has a straight row of stitching in from the edge of the fabric, however this one is different due to the large fabric gather under the bib panel, which made it more comfortable, I did however still size up, the fabric feels really soft and cool against your skin. For a visual size reference I am wearing the 22, am 170cm tall and Apple shaped. Please note that any other fashion items or jewellery have been photographed for style suggestion only.
