The Mechanics of Construction sculptured coat-dress is incredibly versatile and can be draped to suit your styling needs. The asymmetric collar adds interest to the neckline while the hidden button up front can be used to create a one or two sided drape at the front.

To add draping at the front grab one side and fold it under and use the button hole at the end of the panel to button it up to the height required. 

On the inside of the back panel there is a button and loop adjustment that helps create the sculptural draping at the back. Use the fabric tie to bring in the waist to showcase the look.

Or simply leave both front sides long for a clean line coat-dress look. You have the option to bring in the back with the ties to reduce the volume.

The front is linen and matched with light weight cotton sleeves and premium crisp yet soft cotton back (that is also adjustable!).
