Finally, a simple dress that looks better on a real body than it does on a hanger. This all-season, cotton gauze dress is a minimalist look that’s anything but plain. Details like a V neckline and angled short sleeves look fab as-is, or layered with a tee, scarf, and jewelry. Try a cropped cardigan to complement the drop waist. A curved seam at the hips and single pleat at the front and back add movement, volume, and shape.
This is the first dress I have felt good in for quite a few years. Somehow the simple design is not so simple, because it skims over my 75 year old lumps and bumps in the most flattering way. Not loose and unshaped, but loose and shaped! I followed the Petula size guide. I bought the red (love the cheery true red), and waiting for the black to come in. Thanks, Petula, for this sweet find.
I absolutely love this dress so much I bought it in both black & red. I love the material weight, the drop waist style, the curve in towards the bottom hem. So easy to dress up or down with accessories. I have one wish -- POCKETS. It needed side, in seam invisible pockets. My only suggestion. Two best colors n me: RED & BLACK!!!!!!!! Will wear both forever!!!!!!!
