Summer Dresses

The POCKET DRESS has become one of our best-selling styles. We do this dress in one-size -- but we size it up & we size it down. We have done this dress SMALL as an XS & big as a 3X. We have one 3X customer who swears by this dress; but it's been bought by the tiniest people in an XS & we've sold it to young & old alike....
This SPRING, the POCKET DRESS comes in a mysterious sea-green -- ABALONE....

.... or a dusty pink & blue -- SCHEHERAZADE....

For brights, it comes in a yellow-orange -- ORTIGIA....
