I love black watch tartan. I’ve wanted a dress or full circle skirt in that colour of tartan for ages, but each time I find one it’s always out of stock. So imagine my delight when I found the Hell Bunny Aberdeen dress in just that print.
Dress: Dublin Print Aberdeen dress by Hell Bunny
Flats: Old season H&M

This dress has a sweetheart neckline, capped sleeves, a full circle skirt and closes with a back zipper. It’s a medium weight fabric, so it’s more winter-appropriate than a summer piece. In these photos I only wore one slim petticoat but it takes a voluminous petticoat beautifully and would allow for petticoat layering, which makes me happy.
Hell Bunny typically size quite generously. I got this dress in the L, what HB states to be their UK 14 equivalent, for 32 inch waists. However laid flat it measures 33.5 inches in the waist and stretched it measures 34inches, so there’s a little stretch in it making it more equivalent to a UK 16 by typical standards. Bear that in mind when ordering.
It’s a comfortable dress and feels perfectly toned for autumn/winter wear. If you’re more a fan of white and red tartan prints then you’ll be glad to know it comes available in red/white Stewart tartan in addition to this black/green Dublin tartan.
Hell Bunny are strictly wholesalers but they have tons of global stockists so with a bit of searching you should be able to find a stockist in your country carrying this piece. Additionally, you can often find multiple eBay sellers who stock this piece as well, typically for around £49.99 delivered.
