Ethel Houndstooth Swing Dress by Collectif

Recently Two Lippy Ladies brought into stock the beautiful Ethel Swing dress from Collectif and being  a huge sucker for hounds-tooth I couldn’t resist getting one! The swing dress is the perfect classic cut, with box pleats, 3/4 sleeves and sweet collar it reminds me of  Christian Dior’s late 50’s hounds-tooth suiting and dress collection.

The sizing runs true to NZ sizing so I selected the size 10 and found no fit issues when I tried it on, it has no stretch. ( listed as bust 36-38 and waist 28″)  It is the perfect Winter weight  “95% Synthetic fiber 5% Wool” and is also fully lined enhancing the  lovely drape of the fabric.

I received soo many lovely comments while out and about in it and I’m looking forward to wearing it more when the weather cools down. It would be perfect with stockings, boots and a gorgeous jacket! ….and of course gloves!! I’m a sucker for gloves!
