dress 1 in organic linen cotton (tea)
This dress. I just love it so much. One reason I wanted to offer a three quarter sleeve for spring and summer is because when it's really hot out, sometimes I just want to cover myself up from the sun. But the light color and breathable nature of organic linen cotton make this dress comfortable on the hottest of days. Wear with the sleeves down or cuffed for a more casual look.
The color of the fabric is named "tea" since it's pretty close to how I like my earl grey tea to look in the morning after I've added the cream: a very light beige. Sort of like the pages of an old library book. Please note that tea organic linen cotton has a slightly warmer tint than tea hemp organic cotton canvas.
I've designed my "open size" (os) garments to accommodate a range of sizes. Os 2 has 6" more "ease" in the bust and both sizes are the same length.
Kaylee, pictured first, is 5’7” with a bust measurement of 38 3/4”, a waist measurement of 35 1/2” and a hip measurement of 48 1/4”. She wears os 2. Eri, pictured second, is 5’7” with a bust measurement of 34”, a waist measurement of 27” and a hip measurement of 36”. She wears os 1.
Bust measurement: 27"
Bust measurement: 30"
*Please note that because of the handmade nature of my clothes there could be slight variations in these measurements. I consider this my own little act of "wabi sabi" which is the Japanese concept of the beauty in imperfection.
