    Lupin is a dress heavily inspired by a 1895 gigot sleeve blouse. High collar and wide button placket give a tailored couture look - a truly aristocratic design!

    Sewn in pleats in the shoulder and waist give a tailored fit and great texture. Or you can choose to sew the more relaxed version with a loose waistline and gathered shoulders, perfect to be combined with a belt for a fitted look. As always, this design includes side seam pockets, for maximal comfort.

    ✧ NOTE:  Pair with our perfectly matching Bryony belt sewing pattern for more styling options
