The Caribou comes in shirt (with elastic casing hem) or dress length (with the dress hem sitting just above the knee). Both options feature an elegant high neckline and classic bishop sleeves. The front bodice can be one solid panel, or pieced with the potential to include a delicate ruffle in the seamline. Sleeve cuffs can be kept plain for a quick sew or add some loops and ties for a fun feature.

Light weight knits such as some double brushed poly and lighter bamboo lycra blends may be used as long as the facings use a heavier/more structured knit to help maintain structure/integrity of the neckline.
