  • Details

    The long awaited return of one of our most coveted past season items - an improved iteration of our Mara Jumpsuit from way back in 2014. This piece is a modernization of my favorite historical silhouette - the beach pajama of the 1920s. Made for sporting around in both comfort and elegance, the shape is universally flattering.

    Elegant v-necklines in both front and back allow the jumpsuit to easily pull on over the hips, but substantial shoulder straps and flattering armholes keep the fit slim and elegant. Waist ties inserted into fisheye darts at the back provide shape and can be tied loosely at the back for a minimal 90s look, or wrapped around and tied in the front to cinch and define the waist. Wide, slightly cropped legs hit just above the ankle, adding movement and drape.

    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.

  • Sizing & Fit

    Available in sizes XS-XL. See our size chart to determine your size.

    There is a 2" difference in inseam length between each option, in addition to a slight difference in torso length. When choosing a length option consider both your overall height and torso length (for example, if you are 5' 5" but have a very long torso, you may want to order the tall and have it hemmed by a tailor). General recommendations as follows, but all bodies are different:
    - Short: 5' 3" and below
    - Regular: 5'4" - 5'8"
    - Tall: 5'9" and above

    Intended to have a flattering but not tight fit. Adjustable waist ties at back provide flexibility in sizing and can be tied to fit snugly or loosely. Cropped length hits above the ankle.

    This is a reimagining of our Mara Jumpsuit from 2014. If you own a piece from back then, the sizing has changed slightly. It was running a bit large, so what was previously an XS is now a S. We also eliminated the zipper, changed the scoop back to a v-back so it pulls on over the hips, and attached the waist ties to the back darts rather than having a separate waist tie. The fit, flow, and leg are all identical to the original Mara (it’s the Florence Leg if that helps with sizing!).

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

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