The Poppy Dress is that perfect style that works for all sorts of summer plans—wear it to a wedding or to just meet friends casually on a patio. It has a dramatic oversized collar and puffed sleeves, a winning combo if we do say so ourselves.
The Japanese Sheer is 100% cotton and one of those special materials which, when you find it, you have to pinch yourself. We love it for a lot of reasons, but mostly because it gives a more formal option without the limitations of other sheer fabrics—silk (beautiful but fussy) or synthetic fabrics (generally not great environmentally). The fabric is quite sheer, so there's the option to purchase a slip as well, made with 92% silk and 8% elastic. These fabrics are delicate and need to be washed with care or dry cleaned. If hand washing use cold water with soap and roll in a dry towel to take out moisture, do not wring. Then hang to dry.
This ethically produced dress is handmade to order by designer Cynthia Bennett in her Altadena CA studio. We carefully source our fabrics, doing our best to buy deadstock, natural fibres, organic, recycled and from fair trade and environmentally sustainable factories when possible. See our size chart. All prices in USD. Made to order, ships within 10-15 business days.
