This is a very pretty yet functional dress in a smart teal colour with navy blue trim and polka dot design detail.  The dress has a double breasted button detail and a navy blue waist trim helping to minimise a larger middle area by deflecting attention away from the middle and drawing the eyes above the waistline.  I am seen in this photo wearing the dress in a size UK20.  I am 5’9″ tall and find that the knee length is practical for both a day wear or work wear dress.  The composition of the dress is 40% cotton with 60% other fibres.  The dress has a heavier weight so is ideal for the cooler days of autumn.  The dress is machine washable which is all important for the busy working woman.  I gave this dress a cool wash using Woolite (liquid wash) and spun it and then hung it up on a clothes hanger suspended from my clothes airer.  The dress was dry overnight ready for a cool and minimal iron the next day.  This dress is both practical and stylish.  To keep the smarter office day look wear this dress with tights and heels.  I have opted for navy opaque tights in this presentation which also looks good.  You can also tone this look down to a smart casual look by wearing the dress with smarter boots.  In cooler days this dress will also look great worn with the boots and a slouchy style boyfriend cardigan.

On Monday I will bring you another Dickins & Jones dress in my section Featured Product which has very much embraced the folklore look.

Here are a few photos showing close up detail of the Penelope dress.
