HELMI trench blouse & tunic dress
*Named Clothing has made some modifications to their print pattern designs.
New size ranges, fresh design elements and combinations are now part of some of their classic pieces!
The Helmi pattern includes two variations with details you can mix and match!
The straight-cut blouse has elements from the classic trench coat, such as the cape and sleeve straps. The rounded collar and slightly curved hem with slits add a soft touch.
The more streamlined tunic variation is also straight-cut and has a simple stand-up collar, half sleeves, and a curved hem. Both variations have a discreet and elegant hidden button placket.
For both variations, choose a light weight or medium weight non-stretch shirting. Your fabric can either be drapey, such as rayon or crepe, or a bit sturdier, such as linen. If your fabric is coarse, choose a light and slippery lining fabric to line the cape with.
