The blouse featured here is flattering on many shapes, and can be worn in colder weather with a pale turtleneck skivvy underneath. I think in Sydney it's easier to have tran-seasonal pieces that you can layer if need be. This blouse is ideal for all year round if you wear it the right way.

Wear this dress in so many ways... wear it with a wool skivvy underneath, boots, and a jacket for cold day... wear it with a Penelope Red Bow Tie Blouse and pumps on a breezy Autumn day... wear it with strappy shoes and the bolero shown below to a wedding or another special event. You are only limited by your imagination with this style!

This style is available in two colour ways... the red, black and white version, or the above version shown here in black and cream. I have combined two of my most popular styles to create this knit dress: my ever popular bow tie knit top, and my pleated dress style. It has the best of both worlds... being very glamorous, while also being very flattering and comfortable.
The Black and Cream Bow Tie Dress ($240 AUD), handmade from a black rayon/elastane knit, and a cream silk/cotton voile. Both fabrics will launder well, and are very soft on the body.

When creating the designs for this season, I remembered that a few of you have said to me that you like my designs because you can always find something unique and different to wear to work/the office. So I created a few designs for this scenario, including the above suit.
The Black and White Check Bolero Jacket ($250 AUD), and the Black and White Check Tulip Skirt ($190 AUD) becomes a very unique suit. Handmade from a vintage wool blend. Only TWO COPIES of this suit will be created. Complete with vintage buttons!
