dress 2 in hemp organic cotton --------- (tea stripe)
Dress 2 is a gathered dress for lovers of simplicity and shape. It is both feminine and utilitarian which is juxtaposition that feels as important as it is beautiful. I also like the shape-shifting nature of this dress: how you can see how oversized it is when you open your arms up (perhaps you’re giving a hug?) and how the fabric drapes beautifully when your arms are at your side. This dress features two inseam pockets because, you know, you have hands and things to carry. Dress it up with a necklace and chunky clogs or throw it on with simple sandals for day-to-day wear. I think this dress would also look amazing over pant 2 and under smock 1.
The bodice of this dress features a horizontal stripe, the skirt features a vertical stripe and then the inseam pocket has a peak-a-boo contrast with another horizontal stripe. The color of this 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. The stripes are a faded black.
Also available in hemp organic in tea stripe, hemp organic denim in deepest blue and 100% linen in foam.
Let’s chat sizing. The bodice of this dress is the same as t-shirt 2. So if you know your size for that style, then I would recommend taking your usual size. Below are garment measurements for os 1 and os 2. I recommend around 12” of “ease” or space between your bust measurement and about 20” of ease in the hips. As always, you can e-mail me with any questions. Coming soon in in extended sizing including os 0, os 3, os 4 and os 5.
Dena is 5’5” with a 33” bust, 27 1/2” waist and 32” hip. She wears os 1.
*Please note: there could be slight variations in these measurements. I do not consider these flaws, but beautiful imperfections inherent in human hands making clothes.
