This wonderful top is inspired by a 1960’s style we found in Meera's grandmother’s closet. We love it tucked into the Bloom Shorts or Gardenia Skirt, it's what Grandma would have called "darling". It has metal ends on the ties, and sweet shiny gold buttons.
It comes in Japanese Ripple or Cotton Batik. The Ripple is a beautiful, finely-weaved, cotton that’s so lightweight it almost feels sheer. It’s a seersucker, so has alternating textures giving a light rippled feeling—it comes in two colours: navy and white, tan and orange. The Indian Cotton Batik has multi-coloured dots and is hand-dyed so each cut of fabric is unique with slight colour variations.
