    A midi-length dress interpretation of our essential Petra Crop. 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 high boat neck, slim fit in the chest with bust darts, and how it stands away from the body at the waist. A generous hem provides foundational structure and balance. Carefully cut armholes hit right at the most flattering part of the shoulder— revealing everything you want to show and nothing you don't. Hits around mid-calf for the perfect balance of drama and ease.

    Cut from our luscious, washed silk crepe de Chine that drapes and moves like liquid. Feels like butter with a muted, ultra-soft finish and a barely-there sheen visible only with motion. A touch of elegance, but also a hardworking fabric that can be washed and worn with ease.

    Love this style? It comes in many different fabrics, various lengths, and two different necklines! Check out our full Petra and Polly series here.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Silk Crepe

    Fiber Content: 100% Silk

    Description: A washed silk crepe de Chine that drapes and moves like liquid. It has a muted, ultra-soft feel with a barely-there sheen visible only with movement. This is an extremely high quality and medium-weight crepe that was custom developed just for us—meant to be worn, not coddled. All of our silk is garment-washed, so it has a lustrous yet matte finish and is totally machine washable.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle with cool water. Tumble dry on medium heat. Hems, necklines, and sleeves will wrinkle. Press with steam to shape, and they'll return to crisp edges.

    *Silk 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.
