The Emery Dress is a classic “fit & flare” design with a fitted bodice & full skirt. The fully-lined bodice is shaped with darts at the bust, waist, & back of the neck, & closes with an invisible zipper up the center back seam. The knee-length gathered skirt features in-seam pockets that are sewn into the waist seam to stay in place, & a 1 1/2” hem. Choose either view A with short set-in sleeves & an optional flat vintage-inspired bow at the center waist, or view B with 3/4-length set-in sleeves.
