Regular price $169.00

I pride myself on creating dresses that are bold, feminine and comfortable, intended to flatter your figure, uplift your mood and boost your confidence. I’m lucky to do what I do for a living and this new design is named in honour of Coco Chanel - a style pioneer who liberated us from corsets and introduced feminist thinking and freedoms to fashion.

A classic yet modern design that is neatly fitted to the body, yet still allows room to move. The pleated skirt starts at just the right point on the waist to highlight the the smallest part of the body, then drapes perfectly over the tummy area, falling just on the knee, a length that suits most women. Cap sleeves, gently scooped neck, zipper back, pockets hidden in the side seams.

Cotton vintage fabric in mint condition, with a smooth, structured feel, slightly heavier than the vintage sheeting fabrics I often use. One of a kind/limited edition. Handmade partly in my studio, along with a local sewing business in Sydney's inner west. Handwash or gentle machine wash in a washbag using phosphate free detergent. 

SIZING INFO

This dress is a slightly firmer fit than others in this style made from cotton and linen. Although measurements are the same, it just feels slightly tighter, just a natural variation in the fabric, so if you are quite big in the bust it may not be for you. 

Well proportioned and works on smaller bodyshapes as well as more voluptuous figures, the bodice being slightly fuller in the bust. If you are petite up top but have a bigger bottom, select your size according to your top size as the skirt has enough flow to it.

Model shown is average height, sized 8-10, wears the 10 here for a relaxed fit. Sizing and fit are very similar to the Liesl and Nina Dresses. To check your size, lay flat a favourite dress and run a tape measure across the garment (not something stretchy) and compare your measurements to these below.
