The super-wearable Utility Dress is such a wardrobe staple you will wonder how you have managed without it! Simple waistline pleats bring gentle shaping to the bodice and skirt, which can be accentuated to taste with a drawstring waist. Grown-on sleeves and pockets complete the look.
Comfortable, on-trend and flattering, this utilitarian design can be made in any number of fabrics to suit your mood and the season.
