I am a huge fan of the Caterina dress by collectif and have many in my own collection. The cut and shape is perfect and the fit is excellent.
I have a larger bust so I do size up to accommodate and I have large arms so the sizing up helps in this area too.
There is a small amount of stretch to the dress. Most will be able to wear this true to size, but if you do have a large bust gaping in the buttons may occur. I usually don't mind this as I will wear a vest top under the dress.
The Caterina is a traditional style, with flattering open-neck notched collar and short, turned-up sleeves. She fastens at the centre front with a series of navy blue button, and comes with a matching fabric, PU-backed slide belt - perfect for cinching in the waist and enhancing your figure. Her full swing skirt features handy side seam pockets, and she looks excellent paired with or without a petticoat.
