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 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 and slightly nubby 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 lively sage green that pairs well with cream and navy.
The dress is lined with undyed GOTS-certified organic cotton double gauze, produced in a Fair Trade certified mill in India. Our lining fabric is unbelievably soft and breathable and makes for a perfect lightweight layer against your skin.
In addition to the fabric, this dress uses silk thread, 9 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.
Sophie is wearing a size 4 and is 5'8" with a 36" bust, 28" waist, and 38" hip.
