Sturdy yet graceful like its namesake, the Thistle Dress has a fitted bodice with either a standard or bateau neckline. Sleeve options include a fitted standard sleeve in short, half, or full lengths, a trumpet sleeve or an elegant bishop sleeve. For the skirt, a high/low overlay in knit over a gathered full circle skirt. Layer multiple skirts for dramatic effect or make a peplum top.
