        Evening & Formal Dress Set

        The first dress is an elegant little evening dress which would look delightful in satin with yoke and belt in a contrasting shade.

        The second evening dress has beautifully draped sleeves. It would work well in satin,

        The third dress is a very smart frock for day and business wear. Notice the buttoned front and the trim breast pocket. Choose medium weight tweed for an authentic look.
