Shapes print x dress w pockets = double happiness!
The Millican Frock is back for summer and this time it’s in Lisa Condon’s famous Shapes print, on pure cotton lawn
This dress is simple to wear and we recommend you shop for your regular top size. We’ve already washed and shrunk the dress for you. If you’re between sizes then size down.
Because the skirt is gathered and has plenty of fabric in the design it doesn’t matter if your lower half is a size or two larger than your top half.
This plus size dress is designed to be a midi length dress that falls below knee length.
The sleeves fall beyond the elbow and there’s lots and lots of bicep room too.
Yes, you can wear this dress to work - team it with a black blazer and shoes and you’re set to go with confidence.
Please note pattern placement will vary

All measurements allow for ease. This is the extra room we need to move comfortably in clothing. So, just find the measurements closest to yours.
We measured the finished (and washed) garments to make our size charts. We don’t just measure our patterns and hope for the best.
Every garment style has its own size chart. There is a link in the main product description. The size chart also includes pics of other women wearing our products and their measurements and size choices.
What part of my body should I be measuring?
See our how-to advice in the FAQ section. How do I Get the Best Fit?
What about Shrinkage?
It’s so disappointing when a new garment shrinks after its first wash.
That’s why we go the extra step. All garments are washed, dried and pressed after they're made. What you try on the first time, is the same size it will be after a wash.
What if it doesn’t fit or I need to return it?
You may qualify for a free or discounted return - see our Returns and Exchanges Policy for more info.
