This dress has been a work in progress for some time now. It is a collaboration piece by a lifelong friend, Melody & I. I have been heavily inspired by the elegance, quality and simple femininity of the late 1800’s. So it was important to create something reminiscent of history yet still very much wearable, easily customizable to fit whoever wears it and modern in our own era. The dress is made from 100% pre softened Lithuanian linen. There is an internal side zip for convenience, two internal pockets by each side and a weighted hem at the bottom for a beautiful feel and bounce as you walk. The straps are open to interpretation - depending on what neckline you like and how you would like the dress to fall, you can cross them at the back, drop them straight down, wear a top underneath, tie them around your waist, there are a few options, as you can see in the images. Melody has been sewing her own linen garments for quite some time, so whether you are going out or staying in - together we made sure the quality is the best we could find and the pinafores are extremely comfortable to do almost any activity in. All the dresses are hand sewn with incredible attention to detail and quality in Australia, and we are extremely proud and excited about what we have created. We hope you live in this piece and it becomes something you make lifelong memories in :) You can get the dress via the 1924 Womens store here!
