We love dresses that are bold, feminine and comfortable, intended to flatter your figure, uplift your mood and boost your confidence!
This design is named after Coco Chanel - a style pioneer who liberated us from corsets and introduced feminist thinking and freedoms to fashion. So whilst it has all the vintage feels, the Coco Dress has been tailored for modern life.
If you're a little black dress person, then you need to add this versatile beauty to your collection! Or if you haven't got one that you love, then this will convert you to the joys of simple, timeless, elegance that forms a blank canvas for any accessories and colours you like.
Classic fit and flare silhouette.
Neatly fitted to the body, yet not tight, still allows room to move, sit and eat!
Pleated A-Line skirt starts at just the right point on the waist to highlight the smallest part of the body, then drapes perfectly over the tummy area.
Hem falls above the knee, a length that suits most women and the proportions suit wearing with tights and boots.
Gently scooped neck.
Zipper opening at back.
Pockets hidden in side seams.
Room to layer underneath.
Natural breathable fabric with a little spandex offers ease and stretch over curves and on the waistline.
Professional and structured enough for work. Pretty and fancy enough for an evening out!
97% cotton 3% Spandex. Drill weight with an elegant sateen sheen. Brand new fabric, not vintage. Limited edition. Handmade by a small sewing business in Sydney's inner west. Handwash or machine wash on delicates cycle only, inside a wash bag, using phosphate free detergent.
SIZING & MEASUREMENTS
Well proportioned and works on smaller bodyshapes as well as more voluptuous figures, the bodice being slightly fuller in the bust. If you are petite up top but have a bigger bottom, select your size according to your top size as the skirt has enough flow to allow for varied hip widths.
Sizing is GENEROUS. If you hover in-between sizes, like you sometimes wear a 10 or a 12 then please select the 10-12 rather than the 12-14. This is more generous than our other Coco Dresses made from linen or vintage fabrics due to the stretch in this fabric. I would recommend your usual size, but just expect it to be a little looser that's all.
Model is average height, size 12-14 with average bust.
To check your size, lay flat a favourite dress and run a tape measure across the garment (not something stretchy) and compare your measurements to these below.
