A mood booster for joyous Autumn dressing! This Safari fabric is just divine, only two made and each dress has it's own unique print placement, making it truly individual and special.
The Lucy Dress is the ultimate in stylish ease and versatility - relaxed, cool and comfortable on a warm day but also layers beautifully with leggings, boots and a cardigan in cool weather.
Whilst being a slightly free shape with a looser silhouette designed to sit slightly off the body, much care has been taken to finesse the fit, ensuring a clean and flattering form. It comes in a little at just the right spot on the waist and lower back with a lovely V neckline. Sleeves are a neat cap length and the hem falls just on the knee cap. Of course there’s pockets in the side seams too! I've seen so many lovely women of different shapes and sizes wear this dress now, all feeling feminine and confident.
Made from genuine vintage fabric in mint condition. Cotton/Poly blend: estimated 70:30 ratio. Cold hand wash or machine wash in a wash bag on delicates cycle using mild phosphate free detergent. No need to iron, just air dry on a coathanger. Hand cut in my studio and sewn by a small business in Sydney’s inner west.
SIZE & FIT INFO: Average to generous sizing. Model with fair hair is size 10, average height and wears the 10-12 here. She easily fits the 8-10 also but it’s slightly shorter and narrower through the body. Model with dark hair is 12-14, average height with larger bust.
To check your size, lay a favourite dress flat, run a tape measure over and compare your measurements at the same points to those below. Shoulder and hip measurements not included due to the free, flowing nature of this shape. Just to clarify, these are of the dress itself, NOT the body.
