Look who it is! Our newest shape Maggie is here. We love a no-fuss dress as you may know, and Maggie is our newest shape to throw on and go in a new length! A zipless shirt dress without buttons, she's low care and easy to wear with our cardigans, stockings and boots. Fans of Penelope will love Maggie as she is just as easy with added length, something you've all been asking for.
FEATURES: Maggie is one amazing dress without ANY fuss. We love our Penelope dresses and Pinafores, but we've heard the call from our customers wanting something in a longer length to cover your knees. Well, Maggie might be your new best friend, ladies! Maggie is a shift shape without a set in waist or gathered skirt, which has shaping at the back seam to come in at your waist and plenty of room at the hips. The block of the body is based off our Penelope dress so the fit is very similar with the same great features, as well as an added collar and front seam which is so pretty in this border print which has been cut with matching pattern front and back. We love the fit of Maggie which is relaxed but has lots of shape for a shift dress, something that can notoriously hard to get right. We always put lots of effort in to make sure the shape is perfect before we grade the pattern to completion. Maggie has hidden side pockets, an aline shape, and a fitted bodice which fits just right to give a lovely silhouette. We love Maggie with any of our knitwear, as she is a new style we just keep finding great combinations to wear her with.
HOW TO WEAR: Maggie is an easy shape which works well with layers, try Maggie with a cardigan, stockings and boots, as well as wearing her as-is going into summer. She is a wonderful style for in-between seasons. Her longer length past the elbow sleeve is versatile and easy for all seasons, you can wear a thin layer underneath her. Maggie looks lovely worn with cardigans over because the slightly 60's collar looks so cute as a pop of print, and the v-neck of our current range of cardigans works a treat as the perfect combo for layering. Having a nice little collar means Maggie is slightly dressier, so she's perfect for work or occasions. Wear Maggie as an easy shape to feel dressed up, but she's also effortless and needs no accessories. Not having a set in waist means Maggie is easy to belt at your natural waist and also means she is great for ladies who feel they have a higher or lower waist.
