A favourite of our founder Tilly, the Martha dress is a contemporary update on the fit-and-flare style. It features a high neckband, princess seam panels, a bias-cut flared skirt and closes with an invisible zip at centre back. Choose from short sleeves or three-quarter length bell sleeves, with knee-length or mini hemline. It's great for twirling!
Wear Martha to work or to play, with sunglasses and wedges in the summer, or with knitted tights and boots in the winter.
