Here is your new favourite dress! A bright mood booster for winter! 

The return of an old favourite, the Carla Dress is a relaxed style with clean lines and versatile everyday wearability. These vibrant and unique vintage prints look great worn simply as is, but the shape also allows for cosy layers of colour and texture on cold days. Wear this style with tights and boots or leggings and sneakers and a cropped jacket or knit over the top. A long line cardigan or coat suits the streamlined silhouette beautifully too.

  • Slightly loose, free shape with much care taken to finesse the fit ensuring a flattering form that isn't voluminous or boxy.
  • Relaxed fit, sits off the body, super comfortable.
  • Pull over style - no zipper.
  • Round neckline.
  • Elbow length sleeves with cuff that can also be turned up.
  • Nips in slightly at just the right spot on the waist and lower back but still drapes over the tummy.
  • A line skirt with box pleat centre front and centre back.
  • Hem falls above the knee cap, an ideal length for tights underneath.
  • Pockets in the side seams.
  • Looks fantastic on a variety of body shapes and sizes.

 

Made from genuine vintage fabric. Mint condition, cotton poly blend, 50:50 ratio. Cold hand wash or machine wash in a wash bag on delicates cycle using mild phosphate free detergent. No need to iron, just dry on a coathanger.

One of a kind or only a few made per print. Hand cut in my studio and sewn by a small business in Sydney’s inner west.

ABOUT VINTAGE FABRIC:

These special materials are sourced as cut pieces, mostly a treasure from someone's personal sewing collection or linen press usually ranging from the 1930's to 1980's. It is very rare to find them on a roll like a new fabric, so once cut and sewn, the garment cannot be repeated, making it truly unique. They are getting harder to find, particularly in good enough condition for production and are also increasingly expensive. 
Vintage fabrics all vary so much in texture, weight and drape, so the task of washing, sorting and saving for just the right project takes time and effort plus a discerning marriage of resources with design to create each piece. They form part of our resourceful ethos from an of an environmental perspective but also our genuine investment in handmaking pieces of high quality, with character, history and rejuvenation imbued within.
