United Colors of Benetton Jersey Dress

It doesn't look fitted in the photo but the waist is true and it gives nice shape.










About the item:
This easy-to-wear, plum-coloured jersey dress was bought on sale at Sisley (sister to Benetton) though the label indicates it is Benetton brand. I was drawn in by its excellent shade (flattering on anyone) and its lovely kick pleat / bust detailing. It's perfect for work or play - comfortable to move in, yet chic.

Why I'm willing to say goodbye: It's never fit quite right in the shoulders for me. I have a very narrow frame with boobs and the fabric isn't clinging quite the way I'd like it to. Perhaps I should have got a small (but there wasn't one). I could have it tailored but, truthfully, I've worn it twice and, given all my other clothes, it just hasn't happened.

Plus Points:
  • Colour
  • Fabric - it's machine washable!
  • Length of skirt is perfect for stacked or flat boots
  • Three-season weight
  • Lovely sleeves with "button" clasp that's actually a snap!
  • Kick pleat
  • It's in perfect condition.
Size: Medium but there's a bit of give as the fabric is jersey.

Flat Measurements:
Armpit-to-armpit: 18 inches
Waist: 15 inches
Length: 41 inches

Asking: This was $180.00 originally (if I remember correctly). I got it at last call sale for $55.00. I'm asking for $25.00 plus shipping extra. As I'm located in Canada, the shipping may be slightly higher than US-to-US postage - of course, if you're in Canada, it will work to your advantage. I'll aim to post in the most cost effective way, even if it means a slightly slower delivery. I can apprise you of the shipping cost in advance, if you would like. I estimate that it will be about $12.00.

Listing End Date: ENDED, THANKS!
