The store is closed for a break - we'll re-open in mid October!
A versatile and flattering dress or shirt.
This is a variation of the popular Calendar Dress, a design I first made in 2013.
Popular for it's easy to wear style, and the hint of a smock design without the fullness as the back is plain.
Reworked to create a set in sleeve, or a sleeveless option.
A slightly smock style with a skirt gathered to a front yoke, and a plain back.
Make with either a 3/4 length sleeve with a deep hem to roll up to just above elbow length, or sleeveless.
The sleeveless dress makes a great pinafore style, or can be worn alone.
The dress has fully lined deep patch pockets.
All styles have a bias finished neckline (and armholes for the sleeveless version), and a narrow hem.
