  • Details

    The return of one my favorite past season dresses - a reimagination of the Sienna Dress from 2015. With slimmer shoulders, deeper armholes and a lower neckline it has more of an overall-slash-jumper-dress feel - perfect for layering over a thin cropped tee or throwing on over a strappy bra or even a still-salty swimsuit. Roomy and oversized, letting air flow reach your skin.

    Deep Clyde pockets are practical and visually interesting, while vertical princess seams provide flattering length. I like picturing this piece getting lots of mileage in art studios, at beachside restaurants, and on long travel days.

    Cut from a sturdy, incredibly durable linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish, or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. It will only soften and improve with age, a beautiful benefit of clothing meant for a life fully-lived.

    Midweight Linen

    100% Linen

    This is a medium weight, sturdy, structured, incredibly durable broadcloth linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish, or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. It has luxurious body and weight, and the strength to stand up to years of daily wear. 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. It is also one of my favorite fabrics aesthetically - possessing such charm and texture in its variation, with a natural sheen that doesn't feel at all pretentious.

    Available in four classic colors - a warm "Ivory," a natural "Flax," a rich "Navy," and a deep "Black."

    Hand or machine wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry low. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look (as pictured here), or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles, straighten neckline, sleeves, and hem. Will press to a crisp, smooth finish.

    This is a riff on the Sienna Dress from SS15, but you may also recognize it from our online sample sale in January of this year. It runs larger than the Sienna, but we sized down slightly from the sample sale version. An XS from the sample sale would be a current S, and so on.

    Shayla (short hair) is 5' 9.5" with a 33" bust, 26" waist, and 36" hip. She is wearing the S.

    Renee (long hair) is 5' 9.5" with a 33" bust, 25" waist and 36" hip. She is wearing the S.
