Product Details

Bougainvilleas are a symbol of passion and beauty and forever one of my favourite flowers since they remind me so much of my lovely Mexico. These intensely colourful flowers feel like home to me, so I wanted to design a top that felt like it too, flowerful yet incredibly comfortable. The construction of the top is reminiscent of “huipils”, a typical Mexican garment that is usually adorned with embroidery around the neckline and hangs loose around the body with lots of positive ease. The top is constructed top-down, starting with the rectangular yoke and followed by the lacy body. The length is easily customizable for a perfect fit for you to dress yourself in flowers. The pattern includes a full step-by-step video tutorial for the construction of the top and for the embroidery. #BougainvilleaTop

Designed with approx 20 to 31 cm / 7¾ - 12¼ in of positive ease at the bust. Sample is size 4 cropped and model is ~100 cm/39¼ in at bust.
