This shirt dress made from the softest silk habutai is very versatile and can be worn as a long shirt or dress over one of our white or natural slip . The mirrored embroidery at the centre-front is so special and the frill cuffs on the ¾ sleeves add a beautifully feminine detail.
We love wearing the Birds Embroidered Ally Dress, open from the waist down, as a long shirt over skirts and pants, and it’s a very beautiful dress.
We advise buying a size up in this, so if you’re normally a size 10 buy a 12, not because the 10 won’t fit, but because the silk is delicate and performs much better when it’s a bit loose, with no stress points for movement. This piece will last forever if you wear it loose, and will look amazing.
Please note the white silk habutai is sheer so you’ll want to wear something under it. We suggest one of our slip petticoats in white or alternatively you could wear a white singlet and a skirt or pants under it.
