SHIBORI SHIFT DRESS
Short & Sweet
Blue can be such an ageing colour but this dress has bright blues and cream colours which lift it, which makes it a perfect summer dress. However the material is thin and after only one wash on a wool setting at 30 degrees, a ladder has started at the neckline! This is very disappointing as I was looking forward to wearing it on holiday! I would say that it also doesn't need ironing if you wash with silk and wool liquid and don't use conditioner.
This dress is out of stock in my size so I guess I'll have to sew it up and hope no more ladders appear!

I tried this as well as the similar deloris shift dress and was disappointed with them both. This one had a better pattern and I liked the colours with the royal blue undertones and white/navy. However the fabric was so lightweight it looked more like a nightshirt on me, no shape to it even sizing down. It also seemed a bit short on me as a dress but too long as a tunic.

a great and versatile dress
Flattering and attractive pattern, material just the right weight, can be worn loose or belted, with or without trousers. Wore it in Italy and felt good in it.
