The Endless Summer Dress

Dana Rader, owner of Stripe in Santa Cruz, found over a bolt of this fantastic vintage fabric and was generous enough to give it to me to make beautiful creations for all of you! You may remember the peplum I made from it a few months back. Well, hold on to your undergarments because there are even more designs to come in this fabric, including shift tops, pencil skirts, and dresses!

You can pre-order a shift dress like the one pictured below (with or without sleeves) in your size via Etsy. Each dress is $168, 100% linen (so you know it only gets softer and better with every wash), handmade, and one-of-a-kind. Please allow up to three weeks for the dress to made, although rush orders may be possible for an additional charge.

The multipurpose piece

It’s a dress, a tunic, a top. It’s spring, summer, fall, and winter. It works with boots, wedges, flats. It’s made using high quality fabric from Burma that my dear friend Rachel brought back for me from her journey there. It’s handmade with love and the only one that exists in the world.

Fits size 2-4. Best for 5’5″ and under.
