The Velma is a sweet shape that will work so well for occasions. She is one of the rare almost sleeveless shapes we do in a classic V neck cut, she has a bias bodice with a gathered on skirt and she is perfectly cut for work and play.
FEATURES: This dress is a beautiful fitted bodice with flattering, gathered but not too full skirt. The overall look of the dress is quite vintage with a lovely deep v-front that is lovely on all bust sizes, and due to the bias cut bodice she has a nice give directionally which forms to your shape and hugs all the right places. We love the slightly gathered skirt which is structured but soft to wear and is a lovely longer length that works all year round. We love the silhouette which is easy to wear no matter your height and it works well for occasions as the v-back is cut down and the waistline sits at your natural waist. She covers your bra straps and also cuts at just the right point under the arm. We love this shape which is simple and cute and will be a stock standard winner in your wardrobe. Velma's silhouette is similar to a Jessie, but not quite as full in the skirt, so fans of Jessie are going to love this as a v-neck version and a dress that could be styled in a similar way. The length is longer than our usual cut, hitting at the lower leg on shorter frame and mid calf on taller ladies.
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 stylish winter layers. We love Velma as a go-to summer dress as she is just perfect without any accessories or fuss. Velma can be worn with footless tights, thick wool stockings and boots or even as-is with a fun pair of clogs all summer long. The Velma dress is dressy enough for a backyard party, a wedding or even a date night. Velma has lovely structure but feels beautifully feminine without being frilly or too detailed. We love the soft stretch sateen we use for this style which hugs your figure nicely but is breathable and light in the heat. Velma is sure to be a new favourite from our collection and we hope you enjoy wearing her as much as we do.
FABRIC: 100% cotton sateen with 5% stretch. Mid weight, nice and cool in summer and lots of stretch. Slight sheen on the surface of the fabric which gives a lovely dressy and silky feel.
