Lodo Dress Workshop
This has to be the dress that’s missing from your wardrobe. A versatile little number that offers more than a casual t-shirt dress, but still comfortable enough to wear every day in every season. Dress it up for an evening out, pull it on for a casual cover up around the pool/ beach area or team with thick tights, neck scarf and boots, sorted!
With a flattering V neck, the Lodo skims the waist and graduates into a gorgeous cocoon through the hips to hem. Chose from two lengths A hits at mid-calf for a modern silhouette or B that ends a couple of inches about the knee for.
Size 0-18 – or finished bust 32- 44.5” 34-48.5” hip (if you fall outside of these measurements – let us know and we can grader accordingly for you)
