The wonderful Brigitte panelled shirt dress is a brand new shape for autumn. The skirt skims over the waist and hips (no gathers) and is full at the bottom with a deep frill adding weight. The buttons run all the way down with a smart piped placket. There is also beautiful piping detail on the skirt and belt. The gently gathered shoulders are slightly inset to the armhole adding more subtle but definite visual interest.
It really is a beauty in our new black Lily of the Valley print on cotton poplin. Taken as artwork from a vintage archive this original design is perfect for parties but also looks great with a cosy jumper
The size chart below is the actual size of the garment, so body size needs to be an inch less or so than the dress size
