Holly Dress
Women's Merino Wool Sleeveless Shift Dress

Size Guide
Colour & Size: Black


Easy, simple and classic styling makes our Holly Dress super easy to work in with your wardrobe for any season! 

The shift style will skim your tummy and hips to provide a straight-through shaping that is ideal for work or play (plus- you can fill the side pockets with as many snacks as needed). We love a simple pairing of a Plain Scarf draped around our shoulders, or to layer with a Scoop Neck Top for the illusion of a long sleeved dress. 

Full length approx 98cm (size 6)

Holly is 160cm tall and wears size 6

95% superfine merino wool & 5% spandex (midweight jersey)

"Lightweight, breathable in our summer heat, and very comfortable. I commute to work by bike (yes, wearing a dress!) and the Holly has been terrific. I pretty much wear it to work at least two or three days every week -- sometimes five -- and it has been perfect. In short, I adore this dress." - Thanks Jennifer!

Being a handmade and natural item there can be some variation within the fabric - making each piece unique.

It is a classic piece that never goes out of style, it skims the body so as to hide anything you may wish to hide, but does not make you look frumpy or boxy.
It is a beautiful dress, and ever so soft.
I absolutely adore this dress.

If I had only one dress..

I wear this dress practically every day, winter and summer, with different weight leggings, depending on the weather, and a thermal top under it in winter.

my new favourite

I bought the Holly dress in sapphire blue, and it has quickly become my favourite work outfit. I live in Perth and the last couple of weeks have been very hot. It might be counterintuitive at first blush but the merino wool works great in the heat - when I get back to the airconditioned office after coffee/lunch the dress is not sweaty and clingy but feels nice and dry despite 40 degrees outside. The cut is very comfortable and forgiving, the pockets are a big plus and the colour is gorgeous.

Most versatile Smitten dress

I love the Holly dress & own it in multiple colors. It's comfy, effortless, and versatile. I've worn it loose, belted, with tights, over leggings, as a dress, as a tunic, with a cardigan, with a jacket, & even when traveling as a nightgown and swimsuit coverup.
Only thing keeping me from ranking as 5 stars is I've noticed the sizing is inconsistent between colors.

Perfect for warm weather

An absolute must for the summer wardrobe - I’m a convert to wearing lightweight merino wool in warm weather as it breathes beautifully, drapes better than cotton, doesn’t crease like linen and keeps me really cool. The Holly dress is a classic shift style that skims the figure and will never date - so useful. I bought the Armani Ink Stripe and it’s gorgeous, going to invest in another colour (or two!) before long.
