Gingham Shirt Dress Perfection from Marks & Spencer

Gingham is a summer wardrobe staple, a classic that never goes out of style. Blue and white gingham will be forever associated, in my mind, with the Wizard of Oz. Add a basket, a cute dog and you have the perfect accessories, right Dorothy?

Why I bought this one…

Too much gingham (in my opinion) can look a little ageing on us older gals. I therefore chose a blue and white check, pure cotton, shirt dress from Marks & Spencer’s. A superb alternative to all over gingham. I have had this dress awhile but it’s been too hot to wear it, can you believe that? It has small areas of gingham, the check is mixed and I love that about it…

It’s a crinkly cotton, one of those fabrics I love because you dry it twisted up, perfect for holidays.

A gingham dress that you wear it, doesnt wear you!

 

The Shirt dress

I bribed persuaded my 16 year old boy to take these photos. He has a marvelous eye for a pic and has just started taking photography seriously. He knows me well, at one point he warned me not to climb down to the river because I would fall over. Of course I ignored him, fell over and landed on my butt!  Luckily the rear views had been snapped already.

Notes on fit and length

I bought a size 12, my normal size, it fits perfectly but I hope it doesn’t shrink in the wash! It is described as a maxi dress but I wouldnt say its that long? I am 5ft 6″

There is also another colour gingham a deep tan/chestnut/wine colour I like that too!
