FABRIC: Summer weight hand dyed cotton with a textured spot motif.
We took two of our most popular dresses and create on perfect dress. This dress has everything you could want in a dress. Perfect in any situation. This dress was made to fit all body shapes. An elastic shirred back combined with a wrap style bust allows the dress to be adjusted to your own personal taste and shape. The simplicity of the A-line midi skirt balances the romance of voluminous puff sleeves and elastic shirred cuffs. Bust is lined, no lining in the skirt.
Our Clara dress is both breastfeeding and pregnancy friendly.
We are an Australian lifestyle, fashion brand: interwoven with the magic of tropical, Bali life and vintage, bohemian luxe.
We believe in raw luxury. Our pieces are hand crafted in small batches. We use ancient and traditional techniques that support small, family run businesses and ethical work practices. The handmade element of our manufacture supports slow fashion.
HOW TO WEAR IT: We recommend wearing this dress with seamless underwear that matches your skin tone. A strapless bra would also be ideal. There is no lining in the skirt, however, if the correct underwear is worn, no lining is needed. This means you can float through Spring & Summer keeping your skin fresh and free of heavy layers!
This dress can be worn in many ways. We recommend scrolling through the images on this product pages to view all the different ways you can style your wrap bust. Designed for all women, this dress is inclusive of pregnant and breast feeding mothers. Yes, we thought of you guys too! The wrap bust means that this dress can accomodate all the different sizes and shapes your bust may grow to before, during and after pregnancy.
Whether dressed up with a pair of heeled mules and statement earrings, or worn casually to beach or BBQ with bucket hat and slides, this dress has got you covered. A summer wardrobe staple.
