The Petticoat Lane Shirtdress
We love the idea of a shirt-dress, but so many of them don't work on those of us with an hourglass figure. Never fear, the Petticoat Lane shirtdress is here to save the day. The shirt collar spells business, the button-front will NOT gap at the chest (we checked--a lot), the cinched waist is incredibly flattering and the flared A-line skirt lends a hint of fun. And don't worry, we continue our tradition of tailoring in giant pockets to hold your phone, wallet and keys.
This dress was dreamed up over a cup of proper English tea and an amazingly spicy curry while staring at this stunning fabric on Petticoat Lane in London. Cheers!
Since each dress is hand-tailored WHEN you order it, you can check out our size chart for what works for you OR can choose our made-to-measure option.

Her best career advice is this: "We ask 'Where do you want to be in 5 years?' and it's the wrong question. You'll be a different person in five years and the world isn't staying still either. Instead, introspect. Understand your strengths and what makes you tick. THEN grab opportunities when you see them. You don't need to know where you'll be next - know how to evaluate choices along the way."
