Tuesday Dress in Mist Dot

$ 425

SOLD OUT — We sold through our original run of Buttercup Gauze fabric only to find that our supplier is completely out of stock as well! If this news bums you out as much as it does us, you'll be happy to know that we plan on adding a lot more double gauze (perhaps even in a similar sunny yellow color) to the site this summer. Sign up for our email newsletter at the bottom of the page to be the first to know about it!

Story

The Tuesday Dress, a fitted shirtdress with a full button front and softly gathered skirt, is a redesign of one of my favorite SS16 styles, the Aster Dress. As a forever lover of shirtdresses, I wanted to create a dress similar to the Aster but more cold-weather appropriate, so I added long sleeves and used super-cozy fabric. The result is a dress with similar shape and fit to the Aster, but unbelievably warm and a perfect candidate for wearing with tights. The Tuesday also has hidden side pockets perfect for carrying stuff and sleeve cuffs that look just as great rolled up as they do buttoned down.

      Materials

      This dress is made of 100% organic cotton double gauze. Double gauze is one of my all-time favorite materials; it's composed of two layers of gauze that have been tacked together, creating an unbelievably soft, breathable, yet opaque fabric. Double gauze is light and airy and is one of those fabrics that, like linen, is wrinkle-prone (even freshly pressed, you're still going to have a garment that looks lived-in, such as in the product photos), but that's part of what makes the fabric so great to those who love it — it's soft and rumpled and worn in, like a cozy old blanket.

      This particular double gauze is a shade of purplish misty gray with small white polka dots scattered throughout. The color pairs well with white, navy, and our Aegean Twill fabric.

      The dress is lined with 100% organic cotton double gauze, produced in India, that I have hand-dyed a shade of light grey using fiber-reactive dyes. It is somehow even softer and flowier than the outer layer of double gauze.

      In addition to the fabric, this style uses 100% organic cotton thread, 14 vintage mother-of-pearl buttons, and organic cotton labels.

       

      Fit

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

      The Tuesday is fitted in the bust and waist, so use your bust and waist measurements when determining your size. If you're in between sizes, especially in the bust, I recommend sizing up.

      Alyssa is wearing a size Small and is 5'8" with a 35" bust, 26" waist, and 37" hip.
