The sleeves are two-piece full-length bishop style with elasticated hem. There are optional shoulder ruffles for extra drama. Make it up as a blouse or a mini dress.

Keep it simple or add the optional pretty tucks and ruffles, you can customise your Marnie to fit your style.

Fabric Suggestions

For the version with tucks, choose a fabric that will press well such as lightweight lawn, voile, poplins, linen, seersucker, chambray & double gauze. For the version without tucks, drapier fabrics could be used, like challis, light twill, crepe and satin.
