If you’re searching for the perfect dress for your next gala, garden party, or other formal event, look no further than Catarina. This midi-length dress is designed to flatter a variety of figures. The gathered skirt, tie and elasticized waist, figure skimming top, and adjustable shoulder straps give you the flexibility to adjust this dress to your shape.
Make Catarina out of a beautiful silk charmeuse fabric, pair it with your favorite pair of special occasion heels and a Valencia clutch (Seamwork Issue No. 1), and you’ll glide into the party with confidence. Catarina also makes a great casual summer dress or layering piece. Make it out of a slinky rayon, pair with espadrilles, and a wide brimmed hat and you’re ready for a day on the boardwalk. For a more transitional look you can combine Catarina with an Astoria sweater (Seamwork issue No. 5) or a collared shirt tied up at the waist, and finish off the look with a pair of flats.
