A blouse with voluminous sleeves, made here with sustainable Tencel®.
This fabric is a thicker woven twill. Fully opaque. This fabric is drapey and will fall toward the body more than the structured cotton versions.
The fabric has the appearance of awashedsilk in that its surfaces have a similar patina.
The elastic at the gathered cuffs isn't constricting, will not press against your arm. The sleeve length is a strategic distance from your busy hands, while keeping you warm and showing off your bracelets. The clean lines of the dropped shoulder drapes flatly and keeps the volume of the pouf from overpowering.
Fit notes: Designed to fit very blousy when true to size. The intended vibe is similar to a painter's smock, billowy and loose. Ordering a size down will give you a closer to body fit, if you prefer.
The dress form (mannequin) used the photo is wearing the "2" longer" length. Choose "original" if you want a more cropped look but will still cover the natural waist.
Tencel® checks all of our boxes for durability, softness, sustainability, and ethics. It is not only a sustainable fabric. It's a conscionable alternative to silk—it's vegan—with a softness of hand that rivals it and a durability that exceeds it. Try it :)
Best Care: Machine wash cold on delicate or hand wash. Material will feel very heavy when wet as it is very absorbent. Smooth with hands and air dry. Do not put in dryer. Iron on medium setting inside out, or steam. 100% Tencel® Sewn in the USA of imported fabric.
