Uni Dress

9.00

Uni features a semi fitted bodice, an empire waist and a voluminous skirt with gathers. The shaping of the bodice is achieved with bust and waist darts. The front bodice has a wide, square neck, while the back bodice has a U-shaped neckline ending at the waistline. The neckline edge on the back bodice is gathered using elastic threaded through applied channels. The back strap sewn into the channels at the shoulder blades level secures the back bodice in place. The back bodice features wide ties that form a bow with long tails at the bust level. The shoulder seams have been shortened. The voluminous sleeves are set-in and feature tight gathers around the cap. The hem of the sleeve is elasticated. The sleeve is above-elbow length. The skirt is straight, wide and features tight gathers at the waistline. Uni is above-knee length.
