Welcome back to the Brilla, one of the original and most constantly popular Evy’s Tree styles. Named after Amy’s sister-in-law (Brilla is her fond family nickname), the Brilla has appeared in more colors and variations that we can list here. It has always been one of our more “ruffle-y” hoodies, featuring a thick single, double, or triple layer ruffle down the front, around the hood, and by the pockets. Most of the earlier Brillas included a hand-cut fabric flower sewn over the left shoulder. The Brilla has usually been in a thicker fabric while a few have been in a more light-weight material. The Brilla is known as an ultra soft, comfortable, feminine and fun Evy’s Tree classic! Some of the favorite “throw back” reincarnations are shown here:
One of the first manufactured Brillas, and a rapid sell-out, the Polka-Dot Brilla fabric was buttery soft and stretchy.
The Independence Brilla was the perfect Patriotic hoodie!
The Boomtown Brilla
The Juicy Fruit Brilla
Pumpkin Spice Brilla – perfect for fall!
In Summer 2015, the Brilla appeared in a light-weight, vintage-y burnout material in both Cognac and Tomato (see here)
In summer 2016, the Brilla returned in solid, basic black and made of the same soft, stretchy, light weight fabric as the recent Emma Ruffle or Ava Racer.
We wish we could show all of the many Brilla varieties but space is limited!
And now…Brilla in Slate Grey, in both adult and kids sizes from our Honey by Evy’s Tree line! This Brilla reincarnation features a saturated, rich, slate grey. It retains the traditional classic ruffles along the hood and down the zipper and pockets, along with roomy pockets and thumbholes. We’ve made this one even cozier, by using a thick, downy soft, fleece brushed fabric, that’s reminiscent of last seasons Black Shadow Sharon and perfect for cooler temperatures. The Brilla is by far one of the most loved pieces we’ve ever made and the perfect luxurious accessory to your everyday life.
We are pleased to be able to offer a kids version of the Slate Grey Brilla! Made exactly the same as the adult version, this hoodie is compliant with most school dress codes and is easy to carry around in her backpack for quick access. Your little mini-me is sure to appreciate this cute, warm hoodie and now she can look ‘just like Mommy’!

The Brilla is considered true to size; the fabric is slightly loose and stretchy. Size down if you want a more fitted look, size up if you’re in between sizes or if you’re curvier in the chest, or stay in your normal size if you’d like (refer to the size chart as a guide). This fabric, while stretchy, can appear to be slightly ‘clingy’ so some prefer to size up for layering purposes.
Care Instructions:We recommend machine washing, zipped up, inside out, on cold gentle cycle with like colors in a lingerie bag, no bleach, and laying flat to dry. Low iron if necessary. For more laundry/care tips, please see our FAQ section (under the About Us tab).
