Joy is the perfect easy-to-wear dress. A versatile addition to your summer wardrobe, comfortable and yet smart enough for any occasion. Style with flip flops for the beach, trainers for sight-seeing or heels for cocktails on the terrace. Your choice of fabric will mean Joy can be casual and fun or choose a luxurious silky fabric in a fabulous print to make a chic statement dress. Joy could even be layered over a skinny t-shirt or roll neck on cooler days.
Joy is a slim A-line shape with a relaxed fit through the waist, (optional) in-seam pockets, frilled hem, and tie straps. Version B has a little more ease due to the gathering detail on the back bodice.
Light to medium weight fabrics such as crepe de chine, bamboo silk, viscose, rayon, chambray, linen, double gauze, cotton lawn, poplin, broderie anglaise and lighter weight denims. A draper fabric will perform better for the back gathering detail on version B.
