When slowly Summer transitions into Autumn...

Beautiful Cotton Dress in the perfect autumnal hues of Burned Orange, Mustard Yellow and Browns on a warm Grey background. The dress features a scoop neckline back and front, a big double bow (can be replaced for matching belt - just order from the drop down navigation), a back lapped metal zipper, a gathered full skirt and hidden side pockets. Lined bodice. Unlined skirt - underskirt/petticoat recommended for more structure and thickness but not mandatory. Mid-calf length or custom (free of charge).


As evenings getting colder - find the matching cropped cardigan here as well to complete your look perfectly (choose "Dress & Cardigan" and your size)! Made of the softest, thick Cotton Knit fabric in Soft Antique White, this cardigan keeps you cozy and warm. It features a bow closure, 7/8 length cuffed dolman sleeves (can be prolonged to full sleeve by letting down the cuff) and a rounded collar with matching dress fabric detail. Cardigan is unlined (french seams- no overlock seams) because its so soft inside (see photo).
