The new Alma dress is made from a wonderfully rich red velvet needlecord which has a beautiful drape. The high collar and open neck look great with a crew neck-jumper allowing the collar to stand out.
The waist draws in with a cord and the fit looks just as great worn relaxed as drawn in. Sleeves are full-length with elasticated cuffs and the full skirt is tiered.
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
