Our broderie dress really captures that party feel. How? It’s all down to tie-dye-style ombré colours. Top marks for occasion-readiness come from the short frilled sleeves and scalloped edges. A full lining and neat pintucks at the front make the fit comfortable, while a wide hem gives the skirt volume. Practical details are always welcome, so there are smooth side-seam pockets and a buttoned keyhole closure at the back.
