SOLD OUT — We sold through our original run of Buttercup Gauze fabric only to find that our
supplier is completely out of stock as well! If this news bums you out as much as it does us,
you'll be happy to know that we plan on adding a lot more double gauze (perhaps even in a similar
sunny yellow color) to the site this summer. Sign up for our email newsletter at the bottom of the
page to be the first to know about it!
The Celeste is all about simple, clean lines ... and ruffly sleeves. A dress that is simultaneously understated and fun, it balances a classic shift silhouette with a button-cinched keyhole back and ruffly three-quarter length sleeves. The sleeves are created by sewing a circle-shaped piece of fabric onto a regular sleeve, which essentially creates a miniature circle skirt for your elbows. (Something I'm sure you never realized you needed until now.)

This top is made of 100% silk crepe de Chine from China. It is a heavier weight of silk (16.5mm) that has been stone washed to give it a perfectly matte look. When I first laid eyes and hands on this silk, I knew it was the one — never before had I seen and felt something so amazingly luxe with perfect drape.
I hand-dyed this silk using acid dyes; this particular color is a rosy mauve that pairs well with black and navy. As with all hand-dyed fabrics, each batch I dye turns out slightly differently (that's part of the fun of it!), so if you are super concerned about the color, please contact us before placing an order.
The dress is self-lined — i.e., it is lined with the same fabric as used on the outside.
In addition to the silk, this style uses 100% silk thread, one vintage mother-of-pearl button, and organic cotton labels.
Take a look at our Size Guide to find your size.
The Celeste is most fitted in the bust area, so use your bust measurement when determining your size. If your bust measurement falls in between sizes, or if you want a dress with a bit more room, I recommended sizing up.
