We named this dress the 'Margate' for its mix of traditional and modern. Made from an artisan cotton check in refresher checks, the fabric reminds us of pastel beach huts whilst light and comfortable for modern easy dressing.
The style is classic JT, a softly tiered shape, with gentle tiers, a softly puffed (but not too puffy) sleeves, an optional sash and of course lovely deep pockets. Loose enough to go over the head, yet with enough shaping in the upper body for a flattering fit.
Fabric and Aftercare - We have had this fabric woven especially for us so it can't be found anywhere else. We loved the vintage soft feel of Indian cotton so we partnered up with an ethical, artisan maker in India, a first for us but with beautiful results. The outer check cloth is a light lawn, with an accompanying cotton lining fabric in white. As ever, this is a limited edition so once it's gone it's gone.
Machine wash at 30 degrees. Medium iron if desired. We encourage minimal washing, saving water and the environment.
