Introducing the Chelsea Dress, made in a beautiful 'deadstock' tartan check rescued from a local warehouse and sewn carefully by our London maker.
We are known for our vintage inspired dresses and this style is no exception. With a slight nod to the Eighties, the Chelsea dress has romance written all over it with its softly puffed sleeves, square neck and softly flowing midi length. Updated for modern living, we have eased out the waist, simplified the cut and added deep pockets for your mobile phone. Unlined, this is a dress to wear all seasons and looks great worn with a jumper and boots when the weather cools.
We found this soft rose pink tartan check in a local deadstock warehouse and fell in love with it's dusky tones. Deadstock is not a pretty name but by using these 'end of rolls' we help to keep over consumption to a minimum and use existing fabrics rather than add more pressure to the environment.
Fabric and Aftercare - Deadstock fabric. We can never be absolutely sure of the content of this fabric but we think it contains a blend of cotton, polyester and lycra. It has a dry handle that feels expensive and more cotton like with body given to it by the stretch. We have tested this fabric and it washes like a dream.
Machine wash at 30 degrees. Hang dry or cool tumble. Medium iron if desired. We encourage minimal washing, saving water and the environment.
Size Guide - 'Regular' this dress falls within our Regular fit category as it is cut with sightly narrower shoulders to accommodate a puffier sleeve. However, the waist is cut comfortably and intended to feel free from the waist. Below elbow sleeves with a loose cuff that can still be pushed up or down. Length falls to low mid calf on heights between 5' 4" - 5' 9"
If you are between sizes, I suggest you size down in this dress.
Models is 5'8", size 8 and wearing size Small.
