Are you a romantic soul easily tempted by retro vibes? If so, you and Lola are – without a doubt – long-lost kindred spirits. But if you want to be reunited, you'll need to be up to the challenge. This project isn’t for the faint of heart... Your efforts are sure to be rewarded though with an incredibly stylish top that looks utterly charming when paired with trousers, skirts and culottes. Lola features a high, round neckline, ruffles (feel free to double the amount!), a unique open back (with elastic for a comfy, but attractive fit) and a cute tie-back.

There’s only one word for it – wow!

Fabric advice

The Lola top looks stunning in delicate cotton, whether plain or in a subtle pattern or texture. Linen is also definitely a shoo-in. However, our personal recommendation for this pattern is... chambray!
