Dolly Stripe Top

Get back to basics with this wardrobe staple. The Dolly Stripe Top features short sleeves for the warmer weather, but will look fab with a cardigan as the weather turns cooler. With classic Breton sailor stripe vibes and a low pussy bow tie, this top is made from a super soft and flattering jersey which boasts an incredible amount of stretch. A truly versatile piece, you can create two entirely different looks by sizing this top up or down. We love this top fitted snug, tucked into an A-line skirt and paired with one of our soft and fluffy petticoats

The neckline on this piece is cut more to the edge of the shoulder than a full Bardot and we love how the join of the sleeve with the main body give the illusion of a squared neckline. The sleeves and neckline of the Dolly Stripe top are edged in picot elastic which is one of those cutesy details that reveal themselves the more you look at a piece. Pair with a cropped jean and a pair of our darling Susie Leather Flats from Charlie Stone for a 50s inspired look that you can accessorise 'til your heart's content!

COMPOSITION-  95% Cotton 5% Elastane

CARE - Machine washable, do not tumble dry, wash separately

Alternatively, you can use the table below for exact measurements.

We have taken the flat measurements of the garment to give you additional information to assist you with sizing decisions. Please remember these are taken with the garment lying flat and the measurement across the front of the garment, and then doubled to give the full measurement. We have provided the unstretched and the maximum (comfortable) stretched measurements. Remember to allow room for yourself, or compare against a garment that you already own. 

The fabric on this dress will stretch a little so if you are between sizes, we recommend sizing down for a pin up fit.
