Story

Laura stretched her gleaming neck
Like a rush-imbedded swan,
Like a lily from the beck,
Like a moonlit poplar branch,
Like a vessel at the launch
When its last restraint is gone.

– Christina Rossetti, Goblin Market

 

Temptation can be impossible to resist. Unlike her sister Lizzie, Laura is unable to restrain herself. Laura shares a ruffled neckline and a keyhole neckline with her sister, but the similarities between the sisters end at the waistline, with Laura's skirt cascading beneath her knees, ending with a voluminous ruffle. While Lizzie balances opulence and restraint, Laura forgoes restraint, choosing instead extravagance and majesty.

      Materials

      This dress is made of a 35mm silk noil fabric from China, hand-dyed in our studio with acid dyes to be a juicy pear green. Made from the fibers left over after spinning silk, silk noil (also known as raw silk) is unlike any other kind of silk: nubby, dense, and matte, but with a drape so luxurious you know it just has to be silk.

      In addition to the fabric, this dress uses cotton thread, one vintage mother of pearl button, cotton bias binding/pocket lining, cotton interfacing, and cotton garment labels.

       

      Fit

      Take a look at our Size Guide to find your size.

      The Laura Dress isn't truly fitted anywhere, but it is most fitted in the bust and the hips, so I suggest using both your bust and hip measurements when determining your size. If you fall in between sizes, I recommend sizing up.

      Sarah is wearing a size 4 and is 5'9" with a 33" bust, 24" waist, and 35" hip.
