The Saski Dress is a very special little dress we’ve created as a nod to the perfect shirt dresses of the 1950’s. A working button front, full pleated longer length skirt, and an adorable reinforced v-neck makes this the perfect day to night dress. Pair that with the fact she has pockets makes her pretty much PERFECT in our books. She is also now part of our Every Body range with sizing up to a 5X.
FEATURES: This dress is a beautiful fitted bodice with flattering, full pleated skirt. The overall look of the dress is quite vintage with lovely working buttons down the front which stop opening halfway down the skirt so you won’t come unbuttoned at the bottom. The neckline is a beautiful v-neck which stops at just the right point on all bust lines and is a versatile and useful for a lot of different occasions. The shallow pleated skirt works so well on all shapes, with a fitted bodice that creates a gorgeous silhouette on curvy shapes, but also makes a lovely every day dress for work. Our signature side pockets in the skirt make this dress both practical and fun. This is one of our most luxurious dresses as the full skirt takes a lot of fabric and we worked hard to get the cut just right so it feels swishy and fancy, without being too dressed up for everyday wear. Saski is such a beautiful feminine shape with lots of potential wears for weddings, events and even just to the office. She's the perfect mix of dressy but comfy.
HOW TO WEAR: This dress is perfect paired in summer with a pair of sandals and little cardigan in the evenings, as well as with a nice little layer underneath in winter. Accessorise with your favourite colourful belt and a brooch to complete your outfit, or layer up with one of our warm wool cardies, a fun scarf and a coat for some 50's style winter layers. We love the Saski as our go-to summer dress as she is just perfect without any accessories or fuss, and can be worn to beach equally as easily as she can be worn to a wedding. We love this dress styled with a belt and boots, or throw on some sandals for a more casual look and wear her day to day. We also love her with layers in winter, looks great with a skinny long sleeve layer underneath it and Saski is perfect with our cardigans over the top. This one even works perfectly with our rust flannel flower cardigan.
FABRIC: Cotton Sateen with 5% stretch, mid weight with slight sheen and lovely stretch which fits so well after a few wears it becomes a lovely soft second skin.
