The Matcha is a swingy, easy-to-sew top with a stunning, mandarin-inspired neckline. Designed to highlight your collar bone, it leaves your waist free to move around comfortably. Both sleeveless and sleeved versions feature a unique shoulder construction with faux epaulets. The Matcha hits at the hip and is breastfeeding-friendly. Show off your favorite bracelets and bangles with the elbow-length, beautifully angled sleeves, and sew up the sleeveless version to pair perfectly with a cardigan or jean jacket, making it an essential all-season pattern.
