The Autumn Clara Blouse heralds the arrival of cooler breezes and a beautiful countryside changing colours to warmer tones with falling red leaves and white mists.
Steeped in the recognisable features of our summer Clara, this garment features longer sleeves, a patchwork of heavier weight fabrics - in all natural fibres - and Autumn tones of reds and golds. We have chosen sepia tones of linen to compliment the colour palette. We have also selected intricate crochet work to call out a craftsmanship created in the last Century.
All our garments are handmade in Dorset, England.
