This week we launched a new dress just in time for the holidays. We hesitated earlier this year on whether or not to make her, but ultimately decided to and we are so glad we did!
Say hello to Amelia: she’s a long sleeve ponte knit with a sweetheart neckline, pockets, and a wide waist band, in a hunter green that is just perfect for the holidays and all winter long. The sweetheart neckline is the same design as our recent Audrey dress and the thick ponte is the same fabric that you know and love from our Emma and Chloe dresses. It feels like buttery leggings which is a treat any time but especially this time of year when the weather gets really cold.
One detail that separates the Amelia from our other dresses is her long sleeves. We actually launched a version of the Amelia in burgundy a few years ago. She was the first dress we made with long sleeves. But the fit and neckline of this Amelia has been updated. The sleeves are fitted, but not too tight, making them ideal for layering under jackets and sweaters.
Another distinguishing factor about this dress is the wider waistband. While our Emma and Chloe dresses simply have a seam separating the bodice from the skirt, we added a two-inch waistband to the Amelia. In addition to this changing the look of the dress, it also adds a little bit of versatility in the fit. The wider band allows for more flexibility to hit at your natural waist. This is especially helpful if you’re short-waisted.
