483,91

Melinda is a fitted dress with a bias-cut skirt that flares out towards the bottom. The bust darts have been transferred into gathers along the front bodice shoulder seam. The gathers are created by sewing several rows of parallel stitch lines. Melinda features design lines on the front bodice starting at the bust area and going towards the waist area at the side seams. The waist darts have also been transferred into gathers on the back bodice and along the design lines of the front bodice. Melinda fastens with an invisible zip in the upper part of the centre back seam. The upper part of the centre front seam features a faux buttons and button loops fastening that finishes with an opening at the bottom of the centre seam. The dress has long set-in sleeves with flounces at the bottom. The second sleeve option is a short sleeve just above the elbow in length. It features an asymmetric design being slightly shorter at the front and flaring out towards the bottom. Melinda is a midi dress.
