NewLook 6968: I confess that probably the place where I would wear the most dresses is work, and look smart for the part each day. I think this little number is so fabulous in every version - and whilst you can get similar on the high street, I prefer the concept that there would be only one version of this, as made up by the individual creative sewer.
1940's land girl style with a slightly modern twist. Classic fit khaki trousers, with a smart patterned shirt. Lovely day look which could be dressed up with a smart jacket or coat. 1940s hair completes the outfit.
