We've made the perfect dress for summer this year (and all year round!), long, comfy, flowy, feminine and named after our favourite Nashville lady, Rayna is here!
FEATURES: We love this brand new shape we have created for high summer with it's square neckline and elasticated shirred back panel. She is a midi length, one of the only pieces we create that's this length and she is beautifully soft and floaty. She's made out of our beautiful bamboo fabric which is beyond cool and incredibly soft. We love the ruffle on this dress which is long and soft and not too full. The bamboo gathers beautifully and drapes so the ruffle is subtle and soft rather than overwhelming. The back panel has enough stretch that it holds you in, but is incredibly comfortable and accomodating. The length works well with flat and heeled shoes and we secretly LOVE rayna with a good pair of ankle boots, or a western boot if you're feeling the country vibes.
HOW TO WEAR: Wear Rayna EVERYWHERE! We really feel there is no occasion Rayna won't make an impact for! She is really just the most spectacular printed piece for summer. Effortlessly cool but also practical, she gives you all the coverage you need without feeling exposed. Despite being a strappy dress, she gives good coverage under the arm and around the bra line and the shirring gives nice coverage at the back. The length looks just as good in winter with layers worn like a pinafore as it does worn in summer with flat sandals, clogs and a little cardigan or jacket over the top. She looks beautiful for events and can easily be dressed up with heels and some statement jewellery. The simple neckline lends itself to many occasions and the classic cut means you will be wearing this shape for years to come.
FABRIC: 100% bamboo, Mid weight with no stretch. Same bamboo we use for our Frenchie Botanist dress, & Museum of Love Rayna skirts.
PRINT: Favourite Floral by Kirbee Lawler for made590. Mid red base with spliced floral fabrics. Small scale is featured in the ruffle and straps, large scale on the bodice and skirt.
Due to the large scale of the print, placement for this fabric will vary drastically and you may not receive the one pictured in the photos.
SIZING: XXS to 4X.
This is a generous fitting dress, we recommend you stick to the smaller side of your sizing (eg: if you wear either M or L in our styles, definitely buy a medium not the large) or if in doubt size down. There is a LOT of stretch across the back of this dress, at least 15-20cm more than of the rested (not stretched) measurements in the size guide due to the elastic and gathering across the shirred panel.
MODEL SIZES: Phee wears size XXS, Kirbee wears size 2X.
Designed and Made in Sydney, Australia. We use local makers we have worked one on one with for many years.
