Inspired by Grace Kelly and Dior dresses of the 50's. This shirt dress is both flattering and elegant. The set in sleeve line brings in a contemporary silhouette. 3/4 turn back sleeves and a stand up collar and a button through front with a concealed placket front. Princess lines sculpt and visually raise the bust and the neat tie front flatters the tummy area. The skirt leaves the hips at just the right place and we have added a netted underskirt that adds structure, but not volume which means the skirt doesn't project too much. I wanted to keep it streamlined yet add the drama, glamour and flare. This dress is easy to alter should you wish to remove the netted underskirt, however we would always recommend using a professional dress alteration service.
