The ACADEMY dress is a classic little shirtdress with short sleeves featuring a functioning button down front bodice with a very full pleated skirt. Designed for wearing ease and comfort, the ACADEMY is patterned for a relaxed fit waistline and a back bodice pleat to allow increased mobility across the the back and shoulders. And the best part?

I expected this dress to fit a bit more like the Sunday dresses but I was pleasantly surprised this fit more like the January!!! The fit is nice and loose but still looks structured thanks to the buttons and the color. and the front hidden zip is genius! I wore this with a thin light brown belt with my brown boots and I felt unstoppable for the holiday season. Can't wait to wear this all the time. I did have to sew a button back on so just be careful and test out the garment before wearing it out on the town!
The photos online really doesn't do the pattern justice. I now own both options
More options please
Build quality could be a little better but overall this dress looks amazing and I love wearing it !
