Celeste Dress in Midnight Floral

$ 415

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!

Story

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.)

      Materials

      This top is made of 100% silk crepe de Chine. It is delicate, light, and drapes beautifully, and like a true crepe de Chine, it is matte with only a faint hint of sheen. It was printed with biodegradable and non-toxic inks using a waterless digital printing process.

      The floral pattern is a custom Margu print inspired by a vintage fabric design. It has a blue-grey background with accent colors of ivory, blush, mauve, sage, blue and emerald. It pairs well with black, navy, and (unsurprisingly) all the fabric's accent colors.

      The dress is lined with our Almost Black fabric, stone-washed 100% silk crepe de Chine that we hand-dye in-house.

      In addition to the silk, this style uses 100% silk thread, one vintage mother-of-pearl button, and organic cotton labels.

       

      Fit

      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.

      Alyssa is wearing a size Small and is 5'8" with a 35" bust, 26" waist, and 37" hip.
