A shirtdress in a columned silhouette that's fairly fluid, midi, yet defined with a belt is not easy to find - but here's one in a subtle blue and white stripe. I loved the shape of this dress, and found it flattering and NOT constricting. The length and curved hemline adds interest and structure to the leg line. 100% cotton, and VERY lightweight. Great for a hot day when you need to stay covered. If you wear nude-for-you undies, it's not see-through. I returned it because the stripe wasn't high contrast enough for my complexion. But I loved the understated elegance of the style. If it came in something more vibrant, it would be mine.
