A simple, easy dress that will go with everything and take you anywhere. The fabric is a 100% cotton but has a "slub" to it to make it look like linen. The fabric is easy to iron and doesn't crush as badly as Linen does. It gets a little softer with wear too so you should find this a comfy, easy to manage dress. Many ladies come to us for black dresses to use as uniforms and this would be perfect for that. If you need all black, you could just change the buttons. The buttonholes are stitched in black.
This design was inspired by an original 50s dress but it is so classic and simple it could be dressed 40s, 30s or even 20s. It opens to the waist with buttons and is of the "wiggle into" variety with no zip. You then pull in the extra fullness at the waist with the tie.
