The Doris Dress is semi-fitted with a flattering scooped neck bodice, bust pleats for shaping and floaty sleeves. The waist can be left unfitted for warmer days, or cinched in at the back with the attached ties or fixed back belt. The fluted panelled skirt has two length variations. The Doris Dress closes with a concealed zip in the side seam and has an optional buttonhole closure at the centre front. The bodice is finished with facings for a neat finish on the inside. Best suited for drapey fabrics such as rayon or crepe but would also work well in cottons like lawn or poplin.
