Every Body Penelope Dress Gum Blossom
The Penelope Dress has fast become our best selling shape. We call her "the shift dress for people who don't like shift dresses!". She is part of our Every Body range so she is available in our extended sizing.
FEATURES: Penelope features two fun patch pockets at the front of the dress and a flattering t-shirt length sleeves. This style sits just above the knee and is an a-line skirt shape which is flattering on all figures. We love Penelope for the effortlessly amazing fit. She just works! No accessories, no belt needed, just throw her on in the morning and go! Penelope’s high reinforced boat neckline is a great shape for work, but also works well day to day for just about any occasion. The secret to Penelope’s great fit is in the back seam where she curves into the back and creates an amazing waistline, unlike most shift dresses she isn’t shapeless, or sack-like, she is just right!
HOW TO WEAR: This fun, classic shape looks great teamed with your favourite pair of sandals, clogs or perhaps stockings and boots for the colder days. It's a simple style that works on its own or belted, but was designed to be the perfect easy dress you can just chuck on it the morning and walk out feeling confident in. You can wear her on the weekend or even dress it up and wear it to work! You are bound to stand out in the crowd in this dress - and you know we love that at Made590! The shape of Penelope also does wonders to show off the lovely prints we run her in. She's the most simply perfect shape, and a neckline you probably don't already have in your wardrobe!
PRINT: Based on oil paintings of Gum Blossom by local artist Hayley Wills.
