Named after my maternal grandmother, the Joyce dress is based on a rather wonderful old Dior dress that she owned and which I have worn for many a happy year.
Stitched in hand-block printed poplin and fully lined, the Joyce has concealed zips on the front and on the cuffs (I always wear my sleeves tuned up). The shoulders are a little puffed and there are, of course, pockets.
This dress looks gorgeous with a velvet ribbon around the waist - which we have supplied, but it is also great without or with many different types of belt
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
With this style of dress, it is particularly important for the waist and chest to be correct.
