I love the picture of Jean Shrimpton at the Races in her shift dress and no stockings (shock, horror, gasp!!!), so the Jamie Shift Dress wins for me :)
This is a version with a round neckline and slightly flared body, i have worn it twice and love the simplicity of the style, counterbalanced with the slightly fussy (but lovely fabric).
The fabric is a slightly stiff (white base) pure cotton with a set of ruffles sewn width-wise across it to form a stripey pattern, love it!
