Hello lovely readers- here’s a quick roundup of some ready-to-wear clothes and patterns that you could use to ‘steal that look’ and sew yourself a version!
Dupe this linen top with The Rātā Top from Chch-based Below the Kōwhai
This linen was in stock at Draper Fabrics a few years ago and you might spot it in your local bricks and mortar store. I feel like it came as both a linen print and a rayon- you can see other patterned rayons at Drapers Fabrics.
Dupe this woven tee with the Lou Box Top from Sew DIY
Devoré velvet would be a great choice as it has sheer sections, but viscose/silk velvet would also be lush. If sheer is the point, this oak burn out fabric would be a good choice, and if good drape and flowers is the point then maybe a rayon print (or these ones) is what you’re after.
