The Hilary Top is a pretty, peasant style that features a bloused bodice, pleated peplum, boat neckline, gathered waist and sleeves with gathered wrists. The perfect item to dress up, it can be worn with pants, shorts or skirts.


The Hilary Top is easily customisable without a peplum and with a fuller, shorter sleeve. A blog can be found on the Tessuti website.
