Kit Paris – inspiration

The Paris top sewing pattern allows new possibilities, thanks to its new long sleeves kit ! In this blog post, we have gathered together a lot of ideas to enable you to pair it with garments you already have and to create your favorite summer top (or dress)!

Our styling ideas

/// L O O K 1 – tied sleeve
City proof with a striped fabric (Pretty Mercerie), black skinny ankle grazer jeans and high heeled sandals.

/// L O O K 2 – flared, split sleeve
Get the holiday vibe with a printed fabric (Pretty Mercerie), denim Shorts and stylish flat sandals.

/// L O O K 3 – dress version
By simply making your Paris top longer, you get a simple boxy dress, that we have made here in a heavy viscose gray fabric (Ma Petite Mercerie). We love to wear it on a Rome shirt, with brogues, a black biker jacket and a colorful purse.

Best ideas: match the dress length with one of the kit’s sleeves (see image 2), or make a longer dress like the striped one in image 8!
