The latest addition to our much loved collection of beautiful block coloured Lucy dresses is this absolutely luscious emerald green!
It is such an easy, versatile and comfortable shape that looks gorgeous worn casually during the day with simple sandals or sneakers but easily turns into something extra special with the addition of heels, sparkles or colourful statement jewellery.
Careful and considered patternmaking means the Lucy Dress looks fantastic on a variety of body shapes and sizes. Whilst being a slightly loose, free shape, much time has been taken to finesse the fit, ensuring a flattering form that isn't too oversized or boxy. It celebrates feminine curves by nipping in slightly at just the right spot on the waist and lower back, but still drapes over the tummy. Sleeves are a neat cap length and the hem falls just on the knee. Of course there’s pockets in the side seams too!
Made from Tencel/Linen. Tencel comes from wood pulp and is considered one of the most environmentally friendly fabrics. Linen is made from the flax plant and adds a little texture as seen in the close ups. So, this is a beautiful natural fibre with breathability, a smooth, slinky touch and elegant drape similar to silk but it is sturdier and easier to care for. It feels absolutely beautiful on the body, cool and light on the hottest of days.
Limited edition, handmade in Sydney’s inner west by a small business.
Cold hand wash is best for this fabric in terms of look, feel and longevity. From time to time if placed inside a wash bag on delicates cycle in the machine, using mild phosphate free detergent, that will be ok. Low spin only and do not leave crushed inside the machine. Dry on a coathanger. Warm iron with lots of steam but also looks lovely un-ironed.
