Alexis is a comfortable and flattering shift style with added Springtime flair!
The playful skirt and gathered sleeves create extra softness and femininity to the clean silhouette and this beautiful vintage floral is so uplifting - promising to blast away lockdown blues with hope for warm days of freedom ahead.
It fits and flows in all the right places, blending a relaxed straight style with an a-line silhouette for a look that's modern and fresh for everyday wear or easily dialled up for a fancy night out. The Alexis Dress looks great with sneakers, sandals, a pair of wedges or ankle boots and there's so many gorgeous colours in the print to inspire your accessories and make up.
Boat neckline sits just below the collarbone - classic and elegant.
Bust darts for comfort and a neat fit - suits a variety of sizes as there is no under bust or waist seam.
3/4 sleeve, roomy through the upper arm and gathered at cuff. Great for sun protection.
Gently tapering waist and lower back shows feminine curves and floats flatteringly over the tummy.
Pull over style, no zipper.
V back makes for a cute detail but still fully covers the bra.
Hem falls just above the knee.
Controversially, unlike all of our other dresses, this one doesn't have pockets even though we love them! Unless of course they interfere with the overall functionality of the garment. After much experimentation, they were adding bulk and felt bothersome with how the dress draped and moved. We decided not to be stubborn and took them out - so the smooth side seam and frill at your knees hang beautifully, adding a carefree swish to your step just as intended!
Cotton/Poly. Genuine vintage fabric in excellent preloved condition with a soft washed feel.

Handwash or gentle machine wash on delicates cycle in a wash bag using a phosphate free detergent. Low spin and dry on a coat hanger. No need to iron or use a hot iron if you wish.
One or few of a kind, handmade ethically and locally in Sydney’s inner west.
To check your size, lay flat a favourite dress you have at home (nothing stretchy like a t shirt) run a tape measure over it and compare to these measurements. These are measurements of the garment, NOT the body. Running true to size, consistent with our other styles. Always happy to answer any questions to help you get the right size: email@example.com
