Every so often I get invited to try new things and then write about them. This month I was invited to sample some of the lovely clothes that can be found at Fashion World. I ordered some lovely new tops from Joe Browns as I love their bohemian styles and I love the fact that Fashion World do plus sizes! All the tops I ordered are perfect for Spring into Summer and have long tunic length hems (nothing worse than a too short top!). To begin with I ordered this lovely jersey ‘utterly unique‘ tunic:
What I like about it are the panels in different fabrics.
My favourite part is the soft floral panel at the front:
It’s such a gorgeous pattern. I think it would be perfect for a short sleeved summer top too!
Then I chose this soft polycotton tunic. Again you can see I have chosen another lovely pattern. As the top is cotton though rather than jersey, there is less give, so I would aim for the next size up to give a bit more room.
There is a large cut out at the back that you can’t see here but it makes the top really unusual (and does not show the back of my bra, which is what I was worried about!). You can see my close ups of the pattern here:
And the hem:
Finally I chose this lovely kimono style wrap dress in a soft jersey fabric.
You can see the neckline detail here:
and the hem here:
I was worried initially that the wrap bit at the front would gape, and show my bra (can you see a theme here) but it does not. The pattern is oriental cherry blossom and just stunning. The waist is high and sits just under the bust and is very flattering. I love the contrast between the red and purple. I have worn it with jeans but would also work as a dress in its own right.
