Alexis is simple, comfortable and flattering - a brand new style that mixes relaxed fit casualness with bright, fun, playfulness to absolute perfection!
This dress is the ultimate throw on number on a hot day when you crave the bare minimum touching your body without compromising on style. Then with the change of season, there's plenty of room to layer a little tee or leggings underneath and it looks great with a cardigan on top too. The hem is a great length with knee high or ankle boots.
It fits and flows in all the right places, blending a classic shift 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.
Neckline sits just below the collarbone - half way between a boat neck and scoop - 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.
Sleeveless, covers bra straps and room for a t shirt or long sleeve underneath in cool weather.
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.
Unlike all of our other dresses, this one doesn't have pockets. Controversial, because everyone knows how much 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 drapes and moves. So 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 Blend, estimated 60:40 ratio. Vintage fabric in excellent pre-loved condition. Handwash or gentle machine wash on delicates cycle in a wash bag using a phosphate free detergent. Low spin and dry on a coathanger. No need to iron.
One of a kind, handmade ethically and locally in Sydney’s inner west.
To check your size, lay flat a favourite cotton 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.
