We love dresses that let us feel cool, colorful, and ready to go in five minutes flat. Add a long-sleeved tee underneath, a cardigan over top, colorful tights, or lined leggings—there are plenty of options for taking this look year-round. Made of woven cotton chambray (denim’s soft-spoken sibling) with a bit of shaping to the waist. Side seam pockets are sized perfectly for your smart phone.
Sewn by women in a family-run workshop in Oaxaca (wha-HA-cah), Mexico, then hand-embroidered with a colorful floral vine print by a fair trade group of Zapotec women.
A note about the fit: Because of this dress’s simple cut and woven fabric, people with broad shoulders and/or full busts will likely want to choose a size based on the garment’s chest measurement. For best fit, measure across the front of your favorite, non-stretchy top, just under the arms. Compare that measurement to our size guide to find the size that’s most likely to suit you.
I love this little dress! The embroidery is well-stitched and finely detailed; it is as pictured. I've washed it in lukewarm water and machine dried it. There was no shrinkage but it did require light ironing. The fabric is soft enough that it may not need ironed after several more washings. I ordered a size large as I usually wear 12/14; it is a wee bit snug in the bust but the fit is acceptable. :)
I actually loved the way it looked, but it just didn’t look good on me, so I am returning it.
Love this dress. I can wear it out, I can wear it casual in, and I can dress it up or wear tennis shoes. I.looked at this dress for a year -- time wasted!
