The Frenchie Dress is a very special little dress we’ve created for party season and our long hot summers. We have made Frenchie with a loose flowing silhouette and a panelled skirt, which perfectly sets off the lovely neat V-neck and short sleeves.
V-neck with facing which is a neat and beautifully finished
Vintage styling with a full panelled skirt
Bust darts for a great fit on all bust sizes
Side hidden pockets on skirt
Loose waist with good flow without a belt
Skirt length sits below the knee length on most heights
Short sleeves with good coverage from the sun and a feminine feel
Perfect for occasions with a semi-formal feel that pairs well with vintage styling
HOW TO WEAR:
Pair with our cropped cardigans and a belt from our range
Length works perfectly with ankle boots and stockings in winter
For summer pair with sandals and a cute bag for beach trips and picnics
FABRIC: 100% bamboo, heavy weight with no stretch.
PRINT: Backyard Blooms by Hayley Wills. Teal green base erring on the side of green rather than blue with beautiful vibrant tones in the floral featuring Banksia and Bottle brush.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the large scale of this print, print placement will vary so please be aware it may not look exactly the same as the garment photographed.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Hayley Wills is a self taught visual artist who lives in Brisbane and is passionate about developing vibrant colour palettes. We love Hayley's beautiful florals and this fabric is inspired by her Banksia and bottlebrush artworks. Hayley deconstructed her artwork painting each element in a beautiful range of colours that coordinate perfectly with our knitwear. We then layered each individual floral element in the style of the original to create the fabric yardage.
SIZING: XS –4X. This is a larger fit than our normal sizing, please see measurements and consider sizing down one size.
MODEL SIZES: Kell wears size XS with some room and normally wears size XS or S in our clothing.
Designed and Made in Sydney, Australia. We use local makers we have worked one on one with for many years.
