Sewaholic - Nicola Midi Shirt Dress

Nicola is a beautiful shirtdress with a gently scooped V-neckline, button front closure and knee length skirt. The collar lies flat around the neckline for a subtle, face-framing effect. Your choice of long sleeves or cap sleeves, with a comfortable elastic waistline hidden by a fabric tie belt.

Designed with a pear-shaped figure in mind, the yoke features gathers over the bustline and in the back to add volume on top. Cap sleeves broaden the shoulders and the tie belt highlights a narrow waistline. The skirt flares from the waistline to hem, flattering curvy hips. A lovely, classic dress for work or the weekend! Sizing is proportioned for a pear-shaped figure: smaller bust and waist, larger hips.

Sizes: 0-20 (US) / 4-24 (UK)
