This is the dress I quickly ran up before Christmas. I needed something comfortable and practical to wear that would be easy to cook in and that would still look good at the end of a busy day.
Wear it loose or belted. It is not too clingy and will look good made up in most jersey fabrics.
A dress like this needs a slip. In the UK we have Marks & Spencer’s and their slinky polyester knit slips in all lengths are perfect.
Single jersey especially with elastine or lycra added.
