Two hand printed wonky spots fabrics collide happily in this flattering A line tunic / dress.
The soft cotton fabrics are fair trade and hand printed from a village in Rajasthan, India. The printing technique, Dabu, uses mud as a resist to the indigo dye and is applied with hand carved wooden blocks.
It is a generous and relaxed cut which will fit many sizes.
The length comes to just above the knees, so it's great to wear alone, over tights, jeans or slim pants.
The sleeves are bracelet length and trimmed with a handmade bias binding in a contrasting stripe as are the neckline and pockets.
The A line shape adds a bit of swish and femininity as well as being an easy and comfortable fit.
Made by me in my Chewton sewing room.
Measurements when lying flat:
57 cm across the bust
90 cm from shoulder to hem
Please note: I do not accept returns, so please take your measurements carefully and add about 50mm for ease and compare with the actual garment measurements.
Care: This garment has been hot-washed and air-dried.
For the long, happy life of your garment, I recommend a cold, gentle wash and air-drying in the shade.
