Nora comes with two versions, each with a dress and top option.

Version 1 offers a slim, elbow-length dolman sleeve. Use a contrasting or peek-a-boo fabric for the center sleeve panels.

Version 2 is sleeveless with a shoulder yoke that’s perfect for contrasting fabric. The shaped hem hits at the knees, or it can be shortened into a cropped top.
