We’re so thrilled to finally be launching our newest pattern, The Azaire! Made as a top or a dress, this has endless possibilities and is a real wardrobe staple.
The pattern features some interesting seam lines to the front, a lined, curved yoke piece and back darts for shaping. There are a couple of different sleeve options which can be mixed and matched with the top or dress, an invisible zip and lined peplum.
The Azaire works beautifully in woven fabrics with drape and movement - cotton lawn, silk, viscose or rayon are perfect but you could also use a lush velvet for a cocktail dress or chambray for a casual summer dress. The world (or the fabric shop) is your oyster! Play with the peplum and try pleating instead of gathering or leave it off altogether for a cheeky crop top. Try some colour blocking or using contrasting lining fabrics. Size up for a looser, more casual vibe to wear with your jeans. We’d absolutely love to see what you make with the pattern! If you post any pics, don’t forget to use the #gatherazaire hashtag so we can find it!
