All About the Bobby Dress



Build Your Wardrobe with the Bobby Dress

The Bobby dress is designed to make you feel pretty without sacrificing comfort. This easy-to-wear knit dress features an oversized casing at the waist, a fully lined bodice, flattering V-neck, and a swirly A-line skirt.

Pick a knit fabric that will give you a silhouette you love, like cotton jersey, interlock, ponte, double knit, or rayon and soy blends.
