Searching for a great summer dress without print, in a style that was easy to wear, looked chic and was quick to wash and dry without any ironing, I got together with talented product developer Bianca, and together we made this – our first womens linen summer cover up.
I am very proud of this. I am wearing if every day now. It’s made from beautifully soft and medium weight linen. It drapes perfectly and I can wear it straight from the washing line, no iron in sight.
The style is simple, it has an empire line for some shape but it’s oversized. We’ve made it in one size only and it will fit most body shapes, from an 8 to a 14. The raglan sleeves cover my arms for sun protection, the drop back hints at something a little extra and the cotton rope tie is a nod to the nautical life we so love here in Sydney.
In white or navy, these dresses are perfect for wearing over your swimsuit on the beach or by the pool, and after the water. The linen is soft but thick so it isn’t transparent and there’s no sight of any underwear.
Stitched in a family owned manufacturing unit in Thailand, this dress is my favourite thing in my wardrobe now.
Team with a straw hat with a big brim and your favourite summer flats, for a look that will take you from the beach into long summer evenings.
We only have 15 in each colour, so if you’re keen, please try yours now.
