The Ducie Top - Navy Pink Green Check Cotton Mix ~ Limited Edition ~
The simple top version of our Ducie Dress.
Named after Ducie Street, just behind our Port Street shop (where the top was designed and made) here in Manchester's Northern Quarter.
Overlooking the canal Ducie Street Warehouse stands 7 storeys high with arched entryways and stone dressings (quoins) around its edges. Those stone dressings inspired the hand-gathered frills around the arms of our Ducie Dress, and now Top.
Fully lined in a french seamed cotton (attached at arms and neck) The Ducie Top is an easy throw-over layering top, worn over long sleeves when its cold then as is for some breeze under the arms when it gets a bit warmer.
Oversized in the body.
Sewn in a quality german heavyweight thread, in our attic studio by Suzie.
