Dolly and Dotty has incredibly consistent fit, I am wearing my normal size UK 20. I love that I can purchase the same size knowing that it will fit me perfectly! The satin material is sturdy, it did not snag or run like some other dresses I have had made of similar material. I love the feminine scooped neckline and straps on this dress, they make it easy to wear a nice supportive bra without worrying about straps showing. This is a lovely modest dress, before our birding adventures, I wore my Amanda Dress to sing at church with a yellow cropped cardigan and shed my cardigan as the day got warmer. The skirt of the Amanda Dress is generous, I am wearing a petticoat for volume here but this skirt is beautifully shaped with box pleating that gives shape even without a petticoat underneath.
Let's talk about this incredible print! A brilliant shade of forest green featuring brightly colored birds happily fluttering among blue, red and yellow wildflowers and vines. This print is perfect for me because I am a bird fanatic and it is a shade of green that is sadly lacking in my wardrobe, I have been trying to add more green and jewel tone shades to all the bright prints and pastel florals in my closet. The print of this Dolly and Dotty Amanda Dress has a variety of colors making this a fun piece to style, you can chose one of the shades to play up or wear different colors for a bold fun look.
I have been an amateur birder for many years. My love of birds started in high school with bird watching in biology class and grew into a full blown bird nerd obsession when we moved into our home 17 years ago. Our backyard has such a huge variety of birds, we put out bird seed and suet as well as having several bird baths and planting bird friendly trees. We enjoy relaxing on our deck while watching our bird friends and helping to preserve their natural habitats in the woods surrounding our home. I wore my Dolly and Dotty Amanda Dress for a beautiful day spent bird watching under the apple blossoms with my husband. I felt like such a dream picking flowers, looking for new types of birds in my bird book, watching the bees busily working among the apple trees and spending some outdoor time in the sunshine with my husband. A perfect day in a dreamy dress!
Dolly and Dotty has the most glorious selection of vintage style clothing that is perfect for everyday wear, I cannot say enough wonderful things about this company, they are truly one of a kind!
