Paint Dress + Top

Inspired by all things painterly, the Paint Dress + Top is a year-round sculptural statement! Paint showcases a playful voluminous silhouette and raglan sleeve, gathered at the neckline and cuff. Options are available for a cuffed full length sleeve, or an elasticated short sleeve which is designed to sit at the bicep. The pattern can be cut as a dress, finishing at mid-calf, or as a top, finishing at low hip. Paint features simple construction, a bound neckline with centre-back closure, side seam pockets and a deep turned back hem to complete the look. Paint’s generous blousy fit is a dream for pairing with sandals on hot summer days, and layering up with merino and leggings for cooler months.

Sizing + Fit

The Paint Dress + Top pattern comes in our NZ women's 4 - 32 size range and is a relaxed, oversized fit with generous volume through the body and sleeve. The long sleeve is designed to finish at the wrist and the short sleeve option is designed to sit with the elastic fitted to the bicep. Subtle panel lines run through the body to accommodate optimal fabric yield, note that these are not intended to provide shaping around the bust.

Our patterns are drafted for a height of 172cm (5'7"). You may wish to lengthen or shorten the body and sleeve depending on your height and personal preference and change the location of the pockets. If you wish to adjust the fit through the bust, we suggest using the bust apex points provided on the patterns.
