This cropped Bessy Dolman is the perfect summer top for a chic yet effortlessly bohemian feel.
This top was one of the original Cropped Cut Bessy Dolman Tops (so a few generations ago) so the cut is slightly different than the most recent Bessy releases before this.
It is great worn as an easy beachy crop top or paired with high rise shorts. As with all the Bessy Dolmans - I love layering necklaces or wearing one long pendant necklace with this top to create a flattering line and finish it off perfectly.
Poplin cotton - this top is lightweight and moves like a classic button down shirt does. It sits on top of the curves of the body and does not cling or slow over them.
The seams and hems are fully lined inside and out with a black cotton trim to bring the down to earth tie dye look a refined sense of polish.
The fit is the Cropped Cut silhouette is cropped so when you raise your arms or move your midriff may show a bit. This particular one also has a center back seam that makes it fit closer to the body.
It has semi-wide sleeves, but they have less body than the Classic Cut does. The opening of the bottom hem is more snug than the Classic cut fit. The sleeve and the boat neck fit closer to the body than the Classic cut style does as well.
The hem usually hits women around the belly button area (natural waist). The fabric is lightweight and moves with you. *This fit works best on petite frames with a smaller bust.
Front & back neck to hem: About 17"
