The Thea Dress is named after the Ancient Greek word meaning "goddess," as I love to think this is the kind of dress an off-duty modern-day Pallas Athena would wear. It's loose, flowy, and drapey, with a longer-than-expected length and an elegant high-low hem. The simplicity of the design draws attention to the drape of the fabric, and the keyhole back with the bow-tied closure pulls everything together. The Thea is as easily dressed up with statement jewelry and heels as it is dressed down with layers and flats. (I'd like to think Athena would wear it both ways.)

This dress is made of 16mm silk crepe de Chine from China. The fabric is delicate and drapes beautifully, and like a true crepe de Chine, it is matte with only a subtle hint of sheen.
The cloud pattern is a custom Margu print that I designed with inspiration from the layered transparency of watercolors and my love of cloudy weather. The fabric was printed in the US with biodegradable and non-toxic inks using a waterless digital printing process. It has a blush-pink background with semi-transparent ivory-colored clouds scattered about that almost look like oblong polka dots from a distance. The dreamy blush hue of the fabric pairs excellently with ivory, and I've also found it to be a perfect complement to navy blue.
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 style uses cotton thread and organic cotton labels.
Take a look at our Size Guide to find your size.
The Thea is pretty loose-fitting and forgiving as far as size goes, but it is most fitted in the bust, so I suggest using that measurement to determine your size. If your bust measurement falls in between sizes, I recommend sizing up — the dress will just be more comfortable and flowy that way!
