First released as part of our SS19 collection, the Penny Dress is my ode to two of my favorite clothing decades, the '30s and the '50s. The '30s influence comes through in the fitted and structured bodice, while the '50s influence comes through in the cap sleeves and full pleated skirt. Though the dress is relatively simple in design and un-flashy in terms of fabric (it's made from a midweight linen), the Penny Dress feels and looks quite special, a dress destined for afternoon strolls and birthday parties and picnics in the park.

This dress is made of midweight linen, custom-printed just for us in Canada. Opaque, sturdy, and soft, this fabric is the perfect medium for this season's custom print. Linen Pop, designed entirely in-house, has a charcoal-gray base and is dotted with colorful abstract flowers. (Or are they pieces of popcorn? The world will never know.) The fabric is digitally printed using reactive dyes in a process that conserves ink and reduces fabric waste.
This dress is lined with Bemberg cupro rayon woven in Japan. Cuprammonium rayon is so neat: it has all the benefits of being a natural fiber — breathability, biodegradability, durability — in addition to all the benefits of a super silky lining fabric — anti-static, anti-cling, total opacity. Made from the leftover fibers (known as linter) from the cotton plant after the ginning process, cupro is super-sustainable too (a true zero-waste fiber!).
Take a look at our Size Guide to find your size.
The Penny Dress is fitted in the bust and the waist, so use both measurements when determining your size. This dress runs true to size, but size up if you are in doubt.
