Recommended fabrics

This Frances top is made in cotton, though you can select stiffer fabrics or those with more drape depending on the desired effect and your figure.

  • If you’re slender up top (small bust and slender shoulders) and/or rather square, then you can use a stiffer fabric like a cotton (poplin), linen, etc. A stiffer fabric will add more volume.

  • If you’re rounder and have a larger bust or wider shoulders, opt for a fabric with a supple drape, such as crêpe, chiffon, etc. This will make your upper body look softer.
