  • Description

    A midi length dress interpretation of our essential Petra Crop, plus a flattering v-neckline. I feel like I've been trying to design this dress for years - we've had the Marlena, the Elise, and everything in between. What I'm after is a strikingly simple, body-skimming-but-completely-comfortable silhouette that is just as at home strolling city streets to a small cafe on a sticky summer night as it is curled up at home on a rainy Saturday morning. Elegant but not overbearing, simple but not plain. Tasteful but not boring. I think we've gotten it right with the deep v-neck, slim-fitting in the chest with bust darts, stands away from the body at the waist. Generous hem provides structure and balance. Carefully cut armholes hit right at the most flattering part of the shoulder - shows everything you want to show and nothing you don't. Hits around mid-calf for the perfect balance of drama and ease.

    *Pepper is temporarily out of stock and will return around mid June.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Linen Gauze

    Fiber Content: 100% Linen

    Description: A gorgeous lightweight linen gauze that has wonderful texture. The crinkled finish gives the fabric inherent stretch. It's airy and floaty without being too sheer, hugging the body in slimmer styles and draping beautifully in others. 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 washing and drying will return to original shape. Crinkled finish is intentional, 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, hand wash, and do not tumble dry.
