ACADEMY - Black plaid

Pockets, collars and plaid...This is what we like to refer to the trifecta of all things we love! 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? The collar is detachable, wear the dress 2 ways!

I love this dress!

I truly love this dress! I’m certainly going to be on the lookout for more in this cut/ style.

Love This Dress!

I wanted to add something a little vintage, but also modern to my wardrobe. This piece was perfect. I loved the overall quality of the piece and the dress had pockets!

Flattering button down dress!

I love how this dress fits me. It has a really flattering line, pockets, and the collar is just adorable.

Well Designed Construction

This dress has a lot of small details that really show how well made it is. Pockets, detachable collar, an invisible zipper, and a pleat in the back so it has more room in the bust if you need it. Very impressed!


The dress is beautiful, though one of the buttonholes had been slightly sewn to a button but it was easily dislodged without damaging the dress.

I was particularly interested in this dress because it fastens entirely at the front which means I do not need assistance with fastening it. The hidden zipper being further hidden by a pleat was genius.
