Big sleeves have secured their leading role on the fashion scene, but look out... because the age of statement collars has begun!

The Honey top is a dazzling example of this trend. A romantic ruffled trim graces the full length of the collar. Don’t want to overdo the ruffles? This brilliant boxy blouse has charm in spades. And that stays true even with a back-to-basics look, with just a simple collar band and a button placket. Honey drapes beautifully with a subtle A-line cut created by the ruffles at the back. The sleeves are finished with ruffles at the bottom, trim and ties.

Before you start cutting, be sure to carefully check the top’s pattern measurements first to select the length you want.

Fabric advice

Honey looks fabulous in all kinds of fabrics – thank goodness! Woven fabrics work best though due to the delicate details. Poplin, Tencel, linen, crepe, wool and wool blends, flannel, etc. are good options. This pattern is flexible and looks good in both solids and prints.
