The Lily is the most playful dress in our SS17 collection, with a casual V-neck, a simple shift silhouette, and nine vintage buttons dotting the front. The slanted waist seam and slash pockets add just a little bit of structure and geometry to the otherwise easygoing shape. It's perfect for those days when you want to wear comfortable shoes but also want to wear a dress — the menswear-inspired shirttail hem is the perfect complement to flats and sneakers.

This dress is made of flax linen from China. At 6.8 ounces, it is a bit thicker than what you would normally think of when you think of linen, and as a result the fabric is substantial and opaque in addition to being characteristically soft and breathable.
I hand-dyed this linen using eco-friendly fiber-reactive dyes to get this perfect shade of medium navy blue. Being navy blue, the fabric pairs with just about everything under the sun, from white to cream to yellow to pink.
The dress is lined with a more lightweight version of similar flax linen from China, hand-dyed the exact same shade of blue.
In addition to the fabric, this dress uses cotton thread, nine vintage mother-of-pearl buttons, organic cotton interfacing, and organic cotton labels.
Take a look at our Size Guide to find your size.
The Lily is fitted in the bust, waist, and hips, so make sure to use all three measurements when determining your size. The style runs true to size, but if your measurements fall in between sizes, especially in the hips, I recommend sizing up to avoid any gaping in the front.
Alyssa is wearing a size 4 and is 5'8" with a 35" bust, 27" waist, and 37" hip.
