If you're still on the hunt for that festive season piece with the right amount of pizazz, meet the Carole dress.

A traditional wrap style with contemporary puffed sleeves straight from the runways, the Carole looks more complicated than it is...the best kind of project! You'll love the fluid drape of the skirt with its subtle high-low hem. We went for a silky velvet to make this festive version winterproof.

Fabric advice

There are plenty of options when it comes to the Carole dress. Choose a fabric with a soft fluid drape, like a stretch velour or viscose jersey. If it's a statement you want to make, go for a fabric with volume and body, like a brocade.
