Nina is a London based pattern designer and has recently launched her paper patterns.
Kew is a dreamy blend of vintage and contemporary elements inspired by the balmy ups and rainy downs of British summertime.
Version 1 has a touch of 1940s’ tea dress, with ruched sleeves for those cooler days. Version 2 is hot-weather ready, with a strappy bodice and the option of on-trend cold-shoulder sleeves. Version 3 is a skirt adaptation, perfect for dressing up or down all year-round.
The skirt for all three versions features an elegantly flattering high-low hem which dips at the back. All three options close with a front button fastening, and are finished on the inside with facings.
