Build Your Wardrobe with the Bryn Dress
The Bryn dress is one part shift dress, one part pinafore. The sleeveless shift style is fully lined and complemented by a scoop neckline and French darts. The dress closes with an invisible zip for a nice fit at the bust and waist and has fish-eye darts in the back for shaping.
Wear it alone, layer with a jacket or cardigan, or style it layered over your favorite button-up or turtleneck. Sew it in medium-weight woven fabrics, such as denim, twill, canvas, suiting, corduroy, and faux suede.
