The absolutely divine Charlotte dress with it's wide boater collar is a gloriously elegant style.
This fitted dress particularly suits the 1940's mid calf hem line, though makes a very successful wedding dress or evening gown when made floor length, fitted to below the hips and with a fuller skirt from that point down.
This style can be made with or without 3/4 sleeves and is superb for ladies with larger hips as the wide collar balances them out and gives the illusion of a narrower waist line for the ultimate hour glass silhouette.
As a mother of the bride or groom outfit it can be teamed with the Coco jacket and made with a detachable collar, so that when worn with the jacket all you see is the soft round neckline.
This dress is designer Charlotte's personal favorite.
