Violet is an enchanting dress, marrying a snug bodice with a billowing skirt. It boasts a waist seam that gracefully rests above your natural waistline. The front bodice showcases a central seam, harmoniously paired with bust and waist darts, while the back bodice embodies elegance through shoulder and waist darts.

The dress discreetly fastens via an invisible zipper along the centre back seam. The skirt is artfully gathered at the waist, presenting handy side seam pockets. This captivating piece boasts a deep V-neckline, coupled with long set-in sleeves, adorned with pleats at the caps and hems, and neatly finished with narrow cuffs. While the front and back of the dress feature a free-hanging lining, the sleeves remain unlined. Violet is designed to grace you above the knee, making it an ideal choice for your special occasions.
