I used to always avoid full length dresses, simply because I didn’t have the guts to wear them. It takes someone to confidently wear a real striking number to turn that all around. This happened when  Georgie turned up to a party in a knitted almost floor length dress with a very straight cut. Georgie grows flowers and makes beautiful bouquets with them, as well as being a multitalented artist. Since meeting her, I’ve been on the lookout for a design for a hemp dress and found this one that I adapted from a Merchant and Mills pattern. Dresses and practicality are two words that don’t usually go together. Well Georgie does both, and so does this dress!

COLOUR CARE

The natural colours we work with are durable and remain strong for a good length of time if washed with care (machine wash 30 degrees Celcius). However part of their joy and uniqueness is also the way they will change and respond to their environment over time, including the type of water they are washed in. For best results always follow care instructions on the label or refer to the care section under FAQs.
