Gorgeous gingham dress

I love that this dress is made ethically from surplus sourced fabric. It is so versatile and I love that it has pockets! The weight of the fabric falls beautifully and the dress is very flattering. I have worn it out in the day with trainers and also dressed it up for a night out. I was looking at the lilac initially but bought the black, as I figured I would get more wear out of it heading towards autumn, as the lilac is more of a summer colour.

Great fit, comfortable, versatile

I love the fit of the dress, and the puff sleeves! I bought a size small because I'm 5'4" with a short torso. Although my body measurements are more of a size medium, there's enough give in the rushing to fit me. It could be argued that the gingham is a very dark navy and not black, but it still looks great.

Beautiful dress, gorgeous quality, very comfortable

Just arrived in the post today with a lovely handwritten note. Minimal packaging (meaning minimal waste!) which was nice. The dress is very well made, out of strong cotton - the fabric was heavier than I expected (a pleasant surprise - it still drapes nicely, just not as flimsy as I expected), so hopefully it will last a long time. The photos on the listing are true to its appearance. It's very comfortable, either worn as shown in the photos on the listing, or off-the shoulder. I would like to get the separate shirt version at some point as well because it is very flattering! I wear size 12/14 and bought size M.
