Trixie is one of our best selling dress shapes for work and play. Her name is inspired by our favourite Call The Midwife character, who is stylish, cute and completely practical all year around. Pop on our Trixie dress when you feel the need for something a little bit special, but she is also comfortable enough for work or play.
Trixie is also now part of our Every Body range which is size inclusive and fits up to a size 24.
FEATURES: We've added perfect detailing which makes year-round layering more interesting, an essential working button front with a very flattering v-neckline, perfect for showing off the pop of colour you wear underneath, fold-back cuff sleeves which flatter your arm at the perfect angle and allow plenty of room for layers underneath, and a lovely gathered skirt! As always with our shirt dress styles, we have two tucks through the back yoke which allows for extra movement and comfort, as well as small tucks at the shoulder and waist on the front, to create a subtle blousing effect at the waist. She has a gorgeous button through bodice, with correctly positioned buttons (we always add just the right amount so you can feel secure and so the buttons never gape) and a collar that sits just right, adorable worn with a cardigan! We love Trixie as our favourite summer staple dress, cool and comfy! We love this shape with it's cute angled collar, and the fold back sleeve is a genius detail as we have also added a great little cover up section under the arm to cover the side of your bra, but it also allows breathability in the summer heat. Can you tell we are excited about this one yet?
HOW TO WEAR: We love Trixie exactly as she is for summer, throw on some cute sandals and a metallic belt to dress her up for a night on the town. We love Trixie for work as she is quite modest but also can be left unbuttoned at the front with a singlet underneath. Mums with new bubs will love this style, as she is cute and practical and looks dressed up without any effort. This one is also all about the possibility of layers! The bodice and arm hole are both generous, allowing for one of our skinny basics underneath, fine merino jumpers or even a skivvy. On the bottom we imagine her with our coloured tights, thick wool tights or just a pair of well-worn in boots! Our merino cardigans are the perfect neckline to wear with this 50's inspired dress, button one up over the top, chuck on a coat or a scarf and you're good to go! She's an essential stand-out piece which will take you right into those warm sunny days of summer, as well as all through winter still looking as perfect as the day you got her!

PRINT: Seagulls by Josephine Samperi.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:Josephine Samperi is a Sydney based artist who works mostly in pastels, watercolour or gouache and is inspired by the world around her. Jo feels particularly inspired when she’s on secluded beaches, surrounded by nature, or in stark contrast when exploring her favourite busy Sydney spots, being able to while away her time with her sketch book capturing just about anything that catches her eye. Her great love is painting Plein Air (or outdoor) in a quiet spot while feeling unselfconsciously invisible from the world around her. Jo drew these beautiful seagulls while house (and Schnauzer) sitting for a family at Maroubra beach and we truly feel she has captured their personality in these deceptively simple but expressive lines of colour. We knew immediately these cheeky iconic birds would make the most perfect fabric for our Artist Series range and we are so excited to launch the range with Jo's Seagulls.
