The new blouse and dress: Okinawa

The new blouse and dress: Okinawa

Ikatee expands its women's collection with the new Okinawa pattern, offering no less than 12 possible versions, including 8 blouse styles and 4 dress styles.

The Okinawa pattern comes in 3 lengths, allowing you to create a short blouse (hip-length), a long blouse (mid-hip), or an above-the-knee dress. Okinawa also offers 4 sleeve options: short, flared at the elbow, long, or 3/4 gathered at the wrist.

Additionally, all versions share these common features:

  • A roomy and comfortable fit
  • Raglan sleeves
  • Gathers at the front and back neckline
  • A refined neckline with a delicate partial placket and collar

The subtly modest neckline makes Okinawa wearable year-round. In summer, feel free to unbutton the top button. In winter, accessorize Okinawa with a small square scarf tied around the neck! As you can see, Okinawa is our new favorite pattern to create with endless variations.
