Simple, comfortable and flattering, the Day Shift is the dress you'll reach for time and time again on a hot summer's day.
This is one of our oldest designs, brought back for the lovely fit and everyday ease, with a touch more length than previous seasons. Having seen it on lots of women over the years, the shape suits lots of different body shapes and sizes and looks great worn with flats on the weekend or the fun vintage print lends itself beautifully to dressing up for a party!
- Suits small or larger busts as there is no waist seam. - Bust darts and gently tapering waist floats flatteringly over the tummy while still offering a feminine shape so it's not too baggy or boxy. - Pull over style, no zipper. - V back makes for a cute detail but still fully covers the bra. - Big patch pockets keep everything handy - Hem falls just above the knee.
Cotton/Poly. Genuine vintage fabric by Australian artist Ken Done in excellent preloved condition. Soft texture an overall wash fade consistent with recycled material. One of a kind. Handmade partly in my studio along with a small sewing business in Sydney's inner west. Cold handwash or machine wash on delicates cycle only, inside a wash bag, using phosphate free detergent.
To check your size, lay flat a favourite cotton dress (not a t shirt or anything made from stretchy material) and compare these measurements.
