Name: Out and About Dress
Brand: Sew Caroline
Description: The Out and About Dress was design with YOU in mind. Yes, YOU: the everyday lady with one million errands to run, a house to keep up with and a job to finish. This dress is loosely fitted at the waist, has two hem options (maxi or knee length), and two sleeve options (long or elbow), and has the option for a cute little cuff on the sleeve. The neckband finish for the neckline of this dress gives a casual, yet professional look. This is truly a year-round dress that can be worn dressed up for a night with your significant other OR dressed down for a day of errands in town!
