The Matilda Dress, part of the new Spring & Summer 2012 collection.
Timeless and elegant for day or night with tonal detailing. Sleeveless dress has semi-sheer cotton upper with stretch in the body for a close fit in the bodice. Sheer, shiny organza trims the neckline and armholes with ribbon defining the waist. Above the knee length skirt has centre front pleat. Scoop back neckline. Centre back invisible zip. From shoulder to hem, total length is approximately 33".
Made from 100% cotton voile in semi-sheer for the upper dress , and 97% cotton/2% spandex sateen for the body. Dry clean for best results, or hand wash in cold water, lay flat to dry. Iron on low-medium heat as needed from wrong side.
Proudly made in Toronto, Canada.

The bust and waist measurements are most important to fit this style, as the bodice is fitted and the hips are freed by the pleat. Don't have a measuring tape? Here's a great tip: use a length of string, ribbon or cord instead. Mark off your circumference where the ends meet, then remove the string and measure between markings with a ruler.
