All About the Brit Dress



Build Your Wardrobe with the Brit Dress

The Brit dress is quick to sew and easy to wear, and it has details that won’t go out of style. Featuring a modest bateau neckline and full-length bishop sleeves with cuffs, this little dress is semi-fitted throughout and hits at mid-thigh. Perfect for a range of medium-weight knit fabrics, pick your favorite knit for Brit, from French terry and ponte for a comfortable silhouette, to hacci and rib knits for a delicate fit.
