Loose fit Dress or Shirt Le 606
4 garments in one, what a dream ! The base piece is a belted dress with a lot of volume on the top half, to which a series of pleats is added on sleeves, back and skirt level. The back is enhanced by a yoke and two bellows pockets bring the dress a sporty look.
In contrast to the full volume, a collar with a collar stand and buttoning tab add a stricter edge. From this base, a button down skirt can also be made, a short button down top and also a loose fit shirt dress. Find the version that suits you best by trying the numerous possibilities of this model.
