Style Sunday: Graphic Print Shift Dress
The shift dress is a wardrobe classic – I love to see that it is making another appearance on the high street and this time it is making the most of bold graphic prints to really make the most of the simple elegant shaping.
I can’t get enough of this Kaleidoscope Shift dress £148 from Anthropologie – but, you know that the shaping of the shift dress is one of the easiest designs to master, even for novice dressmakers, right? So, I see this as the perfect opportunity to hone those frock making skills and to get on this graphic print style wagon and right it all the way to fashionista town!
