Story

Look at the stars! look, look up at the skies!
O look at all the fire-folk sitting in the air!
The bright boroughs, the circle-citadels there!
Down in dim woods the diamond delves! the elves’-eyes!
The grey lawns cold where gold, where quickgold lies!
Wind-beat whitebeam! airy abeles set on a flare!
Flake-doves sent floating forth at a farmyard scare!
Ah well! it is all a purchase, all is a prize.

– Gerard Manley Hopkins, 'The Starlight Night'

 

Like a brilliant star in the night, Stella is meant to be admired. Cut entirely on the bias, this dress plays with the notion of drape, from the sleek-yet-swingy silhouette of the dress to the ruffle sleeves, and lends the wearer some versatility with side ties that can form a bow in either the front or back.

      Materials

      This dress is made of cotton chiffon woven in Japan. Lightweight, sheer, and with a characteristic dry hand and subtle crunch, this chiffon is a bit more rustic than a classic silk chiffon but no less lovely. It is dyed a true black.

      The dress is lined with Bemberg cupro, also woven in Japan. If you've never worn this type of fabric, you're in for a treat: cupro 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!).

      In addition to the fabric, this dress uses organic cotton thread and cotton garment labels.

       

      Fit

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

      The Stella has a significant amount of ease, but is most fitted in the bust and the hips, so I recommend going with the larger of the two sizes corresponding to your bust and hip measurements.

      Alyssa is wearing a size 4 and is 5'8" with a 35" bust, 27" waist, and 37" hip.
