|Shocking photo, but you get a sense of length|
I made huge claims about this dress when it arrived, and said that this was the one dress I would chose to live in! And given the popularity of the colour block dress in cream and hot pink, it really was a comment I may have lived to regret.
But I wore it yesterday as planned and loved it:
The arms sit snuggly at my elbows - but I can still lift my arms.
The length sits demurly about 2 inches below my knees, but when I walk (or stomp) it does ride up - but it means that it is still a respectable length.
The belt neatly pulls the dress in at the waist:
And there is ample room for my ample Curvy Kates!
This is my new 'go to dress' - the pattern is perfect for winter business dress days, and I only hope for a more light weight one for the summer, but all in all, my favourite wardrobe item so far!
A word of warning though - I stand at 5'10 flat footed, and the dress could be overly long if I was to wear it with ballet pumps - so heels are a must for me.
Much love my lovelies,
