De Beauvoir Blouse Seaview Stripe with ‘Red-y, Steady, Go’ Embroidery


For women with a mind of their own.

Scallops are a girl’s best friend, so enter our De Beauvoir Blouse, featuring bold scallop embroidery on the collar, cuffs and button placket. Named after the mother of modern day feminism, the stand out embroidery echos the bold views of its outspoken namesake. The frill collar and cuffs are the perfect accoutrement for budding intellectuals, while the fabulous embroidery in vivid traffic light red offers a glimpse of the iron lady within. Made of a hand-loomed woven striped cotton, this is a blouse for women with a mind of their own. Chic yet versatile, pair with white shorts and red flats  for a look that combines effortless style and bold femininity - we think Simone would approve.

Due the way our hand smocked pieces are pleated and sewn, our clothes offer a very versatile fit - there is natural stretch in all hand pleated smocks. For this reason we offer fewer, bridge sizes. This means more room for growth and less waste. 

Below you will find measurements for our Girls' and Women's Sizes. Please note that as our pieces are made by hand, there will be natural variation between pieces so the measurements below are approximate.  If you have any questions, do come and talk to us

All measurements in centimetres.

Kids Sizing

Kid's Fit

In general our girl's fit is “Classic British” meaning dresses are designed to hit just below the knee and blouses sit at the lower waist level. At the beginning of the age range dresses will reach to mid calf; at the upper end of the range they will hit above the knee. 

Most of our styles will comfortably fit your child beyond the age range specified: elasticated sleeves, tie straps and sashes allow you get as much as possible from each outfit. Better for you and better for the planet.
