It doesn’t say on the listing what the jersey is made of clayspaniel, but since the whole ethos of the company is to use natural fibres, i’m hoping for cotton! Simple cotton dresses that reach my knee are my holy grail. My concern about this one is that the “waist” seam will sit across the front of my boobs. I have a very long back. The best fitting dresses are from “tall” ranges, with the hem taken up. I have ordered a drsss from Boden too, although it is the dreaded “ponte” fabric.
So, the red dress arrived. I’m gutted that it’s viscose, paricularly since that company make a big deal of using natural fibres (see link in my previous post). I did check the listing, but I couldn’t find anything to say what it was made of. The style isn’t particularly flattering and dud make me look rather pregnant. Sadly going back. I will return to my habitual black and grey work wardrobe.
