high-waisted bubble midi dress in black with a touch of color

From the Santa Fe Collection, this is another fun dress - all stretch, it is very comfortable, with a high waist, bubble-style bottom, and built-in pocket. Top is made out of stretchy crinkled/pleated silk/lycra, with mixed natural fabrics for the rest of the dress. More subdued colors make it neutral enough to wear with a variety of jackets or vests or long-sleeve tops underneath. Great with boots, and since it is about medium weight, can be worn throughout the year. Try it with flat lace-up boots too for a totally different look! And also over longer skirts, as shown in the last two pictures. Product code: M6962


High waist, bubble bottom, built-in pocket, scoop neck with trim, sleeveless, textured front, unlined.

Hand wash.

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.
