  • Description

    A re-imagining of one of our oldest and most treasured styles - the Artist Dress. We changed the sleeves on this from grown-on dolmans to generous raglan style, added a bit of trapeze to the body, and lengthened the hem to hit well past the knee. The seaming pattern allowed us to work with the natural grain-line of the fabric to create an incredibly fluid, sweeping, and becoming garment. It has a lot of volume, but because of the way it's cut, it doesn't overwhelm. The material hangs on the body in luscious folds, and the high boat neck hits right at the collarbone. Roll the sleeves and pair with bare legs for a very casual, summertime look. I also love this layered over a slip dress or silk trousers and belted for all the drama or worn over pencil-straight trousers for a swankier situation. If you need to feel on top of the world, feeling this dress sweep behind me in the breeze as I walk through my day does the trick for me.

    The Artist also comes in several different fabrics and lengths! See the full series here.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Linen Gauze

    Fiber Content: 100% Linen

    Description: A gorgeous lightweight linen gauze that has a wonderful texture. The crinkled finish gives the fabric an inherent stretch. It's airy and floaty without being too sheer, hugging the body in slimmer styles and draping beautifully in others. It's lighter than our midweight linen but still strong and durable. It will only soften and improve with age, starting out with a coarser finish but with the ability to become more supple and flexible with wear. We love linen because of the natural strength and durability the fiber possesses and because it is a very friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing, is virtually lint-free, hypoallergenic, extremely comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent. This yarn-dyed gauze possesses rustic charm and variation giving it an organic personality.

    Care: Hand or machine wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry hot. Store folded or flat in order to avoid stretching. If stretching occurs, machine wash and dry to return fabric to its original shape. The crinkled finish is intentional, so do not press. To remove fold creases or wrinkles, lightly steam or toss in the dryer with a damp towel. Avoid excessive stress on seams.

    *Linen is a natural fiber and will fade and wear over time, which we love. If you prefer your garments to not show as much wear, then hand wash, and do not tumble dry.
