A modern take on a timeless shift dress.
This dress was inspired by the 60s and our founder’s Mama, Carol. The intention was a dress that could do it all (much like Carol the person) and a fit that flattered all different body types. This gem is made to wear alone or layer with the Jane blouse, a turtleneck or a tee. Made from deadstock medium-weight corduroy, the Carol Dress comes with side pockets to keep track of your most beloved belongings and is offered in a mustard color with a button front.
Our dresses are made-to-order from deadstock fabric, which means there is only a limited amount we make in each color, making sure it’s as unique as you. Pick your size and you'll receive your dress in 3 weeks. Personalization without the hassle.
Care Directions: Hand wash and hang dry. Steam or iron inside-out. Or take to a professional green dry/wet cleaner.
You save money by allowing us to only make the sizes and styles you actually want. This cuts down on wasted fabric and materials, letting us reduce prices. Just pick and your hand-made clothing arrives on your doorstep in 3 weeks.
