Availability: In stock

This loose shift from Wiksten is both comfortable and elegant, the perfect wardrobe staple. Choose from three different lengths: a cropped top, above-the-knee dress, or calf-length dress with side slits. The top has a plain back, while the dress has added fullness from back gathers.

Key features are patch pockets, waist tie, and three quarter length sleeve options are also included. Neck is finished with an easy-to-sew facing.
As if this style wasn't versatile enough, Wiksten have adapted the dress by adding a gathered skirt, click here to find out more.
