Feel super festive in our Christina Sherwood Check Swing Dress. She's a classic vintage style with a full gathered skirt and short sleeves. The velvet peter pan collar, cuffs, and PU-backed belt pair wonderfully with the removable silky ribbon bow. We've even added pockets, for extra practicality. Wear with our knitwear options for a cosy look.
This style is cut slightly looser on the waist, to account for the gathered fabric, but the fit and belt length are true to size.

I'm intrigued by this dress. I sized down because my size wasn't available feeling pretty certain it would not fit my bust and the moment I pulled it up to zip I was pretty sure I was right. In the end it did zip up though it pulled the waist up with it. I tried it with the belt with little hope but it did actually look okay, obviously not the perfect fit but the belt did really help (I often think a belt created waist looks a bit silly on a dress with a high waist). Proper belt with holes too! The fabric is beautiful, the style is completely different than my usual style which I like. Love the velvet trim, though the arms are tight they are buttoned so my chunky arms can breathe! Though the fit isn't perfect I think the dress is different enough (and again, lovely pattern) that I will keep it. Size down.
