Description

DESIGN

Mersis dress is a shift dress for superstars. The Mersis draws on 80’s glam with generous shapes and peek-a-boo features that suggest more than they reveal.
Dynasty balloon sleeves, a deep ‘V’ neck at back and midway ‘V’ for the front neckline. The Centre Front seam features a wide seam allowance topstitched down to enhance the long line from shoulder to hem. The centre front hem features a mitre corner finish and split for the longer lengths.

FIT

The Mersis Dress has a shift fit. Loose through the body and slight taper in the dress length hemlines. The ‘V’ necklines are purposefully cut to be above most bra straps and to minimise shoulder drop.  Pocket opening and are on high hip to streamline hips and reduce lapline bagging. There's a lot of ease throughout the body, listed below is the total ease for each key measurement.

Bust- 15 cm • 5 7/8"
Waist - 35 cm • 13 3/4"
Hip - 6 cm • 2 3/8"
