I wore this outfit to dinner during an unseasonably warm day this month, which sadly has not repeated itself.

This top is only available in one size (XS/S), and fits similarly to an H&M; size 4/ European size 34. Measurements are: 17″ across the chest, 12″ across the shoulders when measured at the seams (14″ including the sleeve puffs), 22.5″ sleeve length, and 29″ total length (tunic length).
