Afternoon tea at the Vicar’s, an exhibition at a Chelsea gallery, or a matinee of the new Shaw play- you’ll swear you’ve drifted into a Dorothy Sayers novel in 1930s London while wearing this vintage-styled shirtwaist dress. The dress is knit from the waist up through the bodice, then the skirt is picked up and finished at the end- allowing you to make the skirt any length you choose! Machine-washable Merino wool blended with linen gives the fabric a magnificent drape, which snaps back into shape after washing.
