The Liesl Dress has vintage vibes inspired by a 1950's Butterick sewing pattern but is made modern by the beautiful bold colour and a more comfortable fit.
This feminine, well proportioned design is one of our best sellers as it suits a variety of body shapes and sizes, striking the perfect balance between structured tailoring and everyday wearability.
It would be the prefect frock for Christmas Day, NYE or summer parties! Red lipstick, heels and statement earrings to dress it up or a simple pair of tan sandals would compliment the buttons for a casual daytime look.
- Neatly fitted to the body at the smallest point on the waist so it's very flattering, but not too tight.
- Gathered, full skirt drapes over tummy area and falls to the knees
- Wooden buttons down the front make for a cute feature and are a practical saviour for breastfeeding mums
- Cap sleeves
- Scoop neck
- Bust and waist darts and a zip back for a perfect fit
- Pockets hidden in the side seams!
60% Linen 40% Cotton. Brand new fabric, not vintage. Limited edition. Ethically made in Sydney, Australia.
Cold hand wash in terms of look, feel and longevity. From time to time if placed inside a wash bag on delicates cycle in the machine, using mild phosphate free detergent, that will be ok. Low spin only and do not leave crushed inside the machine. Dry on a coathanger. Warm iron with lots of steam but also looks lovely un-ironed.
Sizing and fit is average to generous. Model is slightly taller than average and wears a 12-14.
If you have the navy version of this dress which is a softer fabric containing stretch it was very generous and this one is a firmer more structured fabric so please go up a size ie if your tag says 12, that means a 12-14 and you should order a 14-16 in this. It is still consistent with most of our other styles though, so if you have a variety of designs from us, just go for your usual size. Please get in touch with any further questions, happy to help.
