Since I first laid eyes on the Scarlett & Jo collection at Evans I have been in love. They make well priced fun funky garments that have suited ladies of so many sizes, shapes and ages. They run from sizes 14-26 at present, and so fingers crossed they go up to a 32 in the very near future.
I recently spied this gorgeous sheer yoke print dress in an Evans store, and I shockingly adored it! Shocking because I’m not a fan of pinks and purples, but you can see why…
And so imagine my joy when Lucy from Scarlett and Jo was kind enough to send me the dress in a size 16.
This dress has no stretch too it, and so the 16 was a snug fit across the chest.
The mesh panel at the top of the dress does of course show my bra straps off, but not in an obvious way.
The dress comes with a tie up sash to help cinch it in at the waist. I will no doubt add my own belt, but I did like the dress as it was.
The cute V neck back made it easy to zip up on my own AND was rather flattering.
The dress comes with a silky underskirt that helps give it a bit of flounce and body. Not so much that the dress is comical, just enough!
The dress is a perfect length for me. It hits me right on the knee, showing off my slimmer lower legs.
Sleeveless dresses are something I do usually have to modify with a bolero or cardi, and this will look great with a variety of colours – pink, purple, black, silver. I can see it working well for a wedding with some shoes to match the bolero. It will also make a great party dress, or something to wear on a casual summer’s day.
What do you think of Scarlett & Jo’s range for Evans? Have you tried any pieces or would you like to?
