Nell Shirt Linen Texture
A new addition to our shirt dress family, this fabulous dress will work for so many occasions and has a plethora of fun details you’ve grown to expect from made590 dresses!
FEATURES: This shirt dress is a lovely little nod to the 50’s, with a shawl collar and big curved pockets. We love Nell with her soft and feminine neckline, along with her well fitting bodice which has room to accomodate a bigger bust due to the tucks in the back yoke. Nell is a longer length shirt dress with a cute fold back collar that tapers into a v-neck with working button front. A cute cuffed sleeve and matching curved pocket are lovely finishing details for this piece. Nell is a great little dress for work, and she is modest but interesting to wear. Her length is good without needing tights, but works well in winter because you can wear her with boots and stockings too. Nell will be a go-to for new mums, as well as for people who find shirt dresses hard to fit in general. Nell is a great shape to flatter curves, she has a semi-full skirt which will skim your hips but not add bulk. We generally make this dress in comfy versatile fabrics, which have a nice weight to them. The gathered skirt of this dress is very flattering and fun, and the bodice fits like a dream! We love the beautiful pocket detail which is subtle yet versatile. A flattering v-neck is great for larger bust sizes, and also works beautifully even if you are smaller, as the V shape is not too deep or revealing. As always our practical from pockets will win your heart, and these ones are a size that will be perfect for your keys, wallet and phone.
HOW TO WEAR: We love Nell as our everyday dress for work and play. She is flattering and easy to wear for so many occasions. We love Nell for work worn with a cute cardigan or denim jacket over the top. The collar sits nice and flat under outer layers, but we love Nell layered with long sleeve tops underneath in winter months. The small cuff on the sleeve works wonderfully for a dressy fit without it being too tight at the arm. The cut of Nell is mature but fun, and in our eyes you can never go wrong with a few good shirt dresses on rotation! The waistline is slightly more fitted than in our Trixie dresses and she has a classic high waisted cut with a full skirt. Nell is lovely worn with a little pair of clogs or heels for going out to dinner, and her length also works with ankle boots or sandals in summer. Team her with a leather belt from our range, classic tan or a metallic will work for any occasion! We love Nell for her beautiful silhouette that is both classic and feminine without frills or anything too busy.
