This pencil dress takes an element popular in traditional African dresses – a ruffled sleeve – and slims down the finished look for a more streamlined, modern silhouette.
In a bold floral African print, this pencil dress is cut on the bias and tailored for a close fit to flatter your figure, in a dynamic shade of fuchsia with yellow accents. The pencil skirt reaches to just below the knee, creating a sleek shape that is suitable for multiple occasions.
The bell layered sleeve features the same African print of flowers as the rest of the dress, this time in a bright, contrasting, cyan blue. The sleeve is fitted from the shoulder, then the triple layer creates a ruffled effect to end around the elbow.
The cyan print is used to form the mandarin collar, and fastened at the back with a metal zip.
A dress that demands attention, it’s perfect for women who enjoy well-tailored clothes that still maintain a sense of fun.
