    **Alabama Chanin X Elizabeth Suzann preorders will ship within 3–4 months of when they were purchased.**

    This is a reboot of one of our oldest styles, originally cut and sewn in-house from a terry knit, then produced in collaboration with Kordal as a fully fashioned machine-knit sweater. Now made in Florence, Alabama by Alabama Chanin—true experts in cut-and-sew knitwear—in a fleecy, organic cotton.

    I've wanted something like the Billie in my wardrobe for a long time: a sweater dress that doesn't cling at the hips, can be comfortably layered over pants, but still has movement and shape. The fabric is the real highlight here—textured, soft, interesting, and warm. It strikes me as something my favorite artists from the 1970s would wear on chilly desert nights in Marfa. The drop shoulders and balloon sleeves give a bit of romance to the silhouette, and also allow for generous range of motion. Billie is the ultimate fall layering dress: wear by itself, curled up with coffee at home over your worn-in jeans for those crisp weekend afternoons; or with a pair of pin-straight trousers and a cashmere scarf for a holiday dinner party. Slightly longer in the back than the front for a shirttail-esque shape.

    Love this style? It comes in two lengths! Check out our full Alabama Chanin x Elizabeth Suzann Collection here.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Textured Cotton Knit

    Fiber Content: 100% Organic Cotton

    Description: An unmatchably soft, heavyweight knit that will have you feeling as if you're wearing a cloud. With its smooth finish on the interior, and mossy, fleecy finish on the outside, this fabric pairs rich visual interest with ease and comfort. Due to its plush, dense handfeel, our Textured Cotton Knit retains heat and will keep you cozy all year round.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on a cold, delicate cycle, and lay flat to dry. Use fingers post-wash to re-fluff any areas that look flattened.

    *Cotton 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. Our Textured Cotton Knit has a texture similar to wool, which can get matted when wet. To treat matting or pilling, use a bristle brush to re-fluff your garment while wet.

  • Sizing & Fit

    Intended to have a loose but not overwhelming fit, lightly hugging the hips. Long sleeves hit just above the wrist to accentuate the rounded cuffs, and high-low hem hits just below the hips. Features a softening boat neck and drop shoulders.
