Insight & Inspiration

The very first dress designed by us, and it's a perfect shirtwaister if we may say so ourselves!  It has proved very popular thanks to its versatility.  We have seen it styled to be worn everywhere from work to weddings!

Now available in burgundy or black with brown buttons which match our tan Berkeley belt wonderfully!

Detailed Description

A shirtwaister style dress sounds like a simple enough thing to design... but rest assured that it really isn't!

In our London boutique we spent hours and hours perfecting and tweaking this design. We wanted a dress with sleeves, but that didn't feel like there was too much fabric. It also needed to have plenty of movement, room for an ample bust but also not swamp those less blessed in that area. (Check out the gorgeous seaming under the bust as a result of that!)

We also wanted it to be a classic knee length, machine washable, and to have pockets. And what pockets. These are the pockets taken from our Handy Pocket Skirt and our Culottes- and to put your hand in one is to instantly fall in love. They are very deep, and wide enough to accommodate a big smartphone. 

The fabric has a soft suede-like sheen, and the tan coloured buttons provide the perfect point of detail to help break up the black.  They match our tan Berkeley belt wonderfully!

We think it's an instant best seller- and hope you enjoy wearing it!

Designed by us in Fitzrovia, made in London.

Cool machine wash.
