Molly Dress Chameli Flower Blossom, Rayon dobby

245.00

This season is inspired by 18th Century trade and migration, I imagined a trunk full of precious print and embroidery that had been carried by galleons across great Oceans.  A cross pollination of craft and ideas.  

This print is inspired by the English country sprig florals of that era.  Ironically English designs would be sent to India to print on fine cotton fabric, then sent back to England again!  Not a very green carbon footprint - but a beautiful legacy of prints! 

I do love a sleeve and a roomy slouchy dress.  If you are of my ilk, then this dress is for you.  When I want to create more of a cinched waist I tie the belt.  Otherwise I hang loose, sometimes with a pair of sturdy boots and a turtleneck.  Sometimes with a sandal.  Depends which hemisphere I'm on!  It also buttons right through, so when I'm in a trouser mood I wear it open over jeans and a T-shirt. 

Front placket with buttons.  Side pockets.  Removable belt. 

100% Rayon dot dobby.  Hand wash or gentle cycle.

Designed and hand block printed by our team of artisans in Jaipur India.
