Fitted through the body with a slight flare around the hips. Meant as a looser-fitting dress.

Each piece is designed, constructed, hand-painted, distressed and embellished entirely by the artist, from start to finish.

There are always matching pieces and accessories. They just may not be listed yet, so please inquire if you cannot find something to complete the outfit.

Size: S/M, the knit body is stretchy, so will accommodate a few more inches comfortably. Shown in pictures on two different height models so that you can see the length variation for different heights. Measurements: 34" unstretched around chest, 48" hips, 32" long.

Linen knit, brushed cotton twill, hand-painted, hand-distressed.

Gentle dry clean or spot clean with water.

General cleaning instructions for all garments (also see care tag inside the clothing) are as follows:

  • Any garment can be dry-cleaned with the gentle/delicates method.
  • Items marked 'hand wash' can be washed by hand (not in the gentle or hand-wash machine cycle), separately, as briefly as possible, with minimal amount of mild detergent, particularly for hand-painted items. Follow with the spin cycle of the washing machine, and finish in medium heat dryer, unless hang-drying is recommended, which is the case for most knits.
  • Hand-pressing is recommended on most items after the wash and dry to straighten out the seams and edges which tend to pucker or curl on natural fabrics.
  • Some hand-dyed items may leak a bit of color during the washing, that is normal and will not affect the item. Using liquid softener during the wash will minimize any color leaking.
