The Spanish cotton blend Elsie is made from has a touch of stretch that keeps it from creasing. The ruching at the waist is echoed in a row of ruching at the knee, which gathers up all that textured fabric to drape so beautifully. The pockets tucked into the side seams are roomy enough to hold a lot, and thanks to the drawcord, the waistline stays put no matter what you carry in them.
Lee Mathews, former illustrator and art director for Vogue Australia, started her eponymous label almost unintentionally, sewing clothes for herself and her friends while sitting in her kitchen. It has since evolved into a quietly impressive, five-drops-per-year operation, turning out swingy shirtdresses and top-stitched separates that are beautiful, functional and—best of all—timeless.
