Winter weekends with friends - a snowy walk, a cup of coffee in your favourite café and then a movie night. The ideal scenario for our Delamere Dress - a comfy, yet stylish knit dress in broke rib that comes wih two fit options: A-line for an oversized modern look and straight for a classic close-to-the-body fit. Sherwood Yarn’s Masham blend gives an incredible depth to it and makes sure your stay warm no matter what the weekend brings. In case you’re between sizes, we suggest you go down a size for the A-line version, and up a size for the fitted version.
