The Button Back Shell

If you're obsessed with The Crown, you might yearn for some of the classic, mid-century styles. This shell comes courtesy of Princess Margaret and our founder's mother (who nagged us to create this pattern)!

The shell fits like a shift - skimming the bust and loose to the hip - and buttons up the back. Sleeveless, hits around the hip bone.    


Customizable details include lining and hem length. Simply mention any alterations you would like in the Custom Request box.

But Wait! How Do I select a size?

We do fit differently: rather than selecting an arbitrary size now, you'll take a quick fit quiz when you create an account. Learn more about The Kit Fit.
