This fun dress is made from incredible cotton seersucker, a rare and unique fabric that has a beautiful waffle texture to it. Leopard print is such a classic worn with black and leather and metallics or get as wild as you like with bright bold accessories.
The Lucy Dress is the ultimate in stylish ease and versatility, making it our best seller. Lots of brands make dresses with a loose feel but the little details and perfect fit make ours the best!
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.
Nips in slightly at just the right spot on the waist and lower back but still drapes over the tummy - not babydoll or drop waist.
Pull over style - no zipper.
Soft cap sleeves without an inset seam for ease of movement and flexibility in shoulder size. Allows for layering options like a long sleeved tee or turtle neck to be worn underneath.
Softly gathered skirt, that's floaty but not too full.
Hem falls just on/above the knee.
Pockets in the side seams.
Looks fantastic on a variety of body shapes and sizes.

Hand cut in my studio and sewn by a small business in Sydney’s inner west.
