“One size fits all” is a tricky phrase, especially for those who don’t fit into that one size. But when it’s generous and versatile, a one-size garment is a miracle, which is what interior designer April Pride has created with her miracle dress, actually called The Dress, which serves as a first foray into fashion for this Madison Park mom. Inspired by a vintage hand-me-down from her mother-in-law that had been custom-made from Italian men’s shirting, Pride’s dress will fit most body shapes, thanks to its flattering button-up halter top, extra-long obi-style belt and slightly full skirt. “I have a closet full of clothes and all I want to wear during the summer is this one dress,” says Pride, who pairs it with some red lipstick and is good to go. It comes in white, black, navy or pewter, with a limited capsule collection of vintage fabrics (including turquoise linen) in original and maxi length, and is available only through in-home trunk shows or online. Starts at $295. aprilpride.com
