We have reimagined our always popular Olive Dress in woven checks and stripes this season. Combining both structure and organic drape, the Olive Dress has an elegant and slightly scooped neckline, dropped shoulders, and side panels with gentle gathering. A perfect wear alone or layer style, the Olive Dress features a longer sleeve for coverage and convenient side pockets. This garment has been over-dyed in Melbourne by Metta Melbourne in the shade of Seafoam Green.
Ticking Stripe was originally known as ‘ticking fabric’ and made from thickly woven cotton or linen, and in this case a lovely lightweight woven Lithuanian linen. ‘Ticking’ comes from the Greek word ‘theka’, which means ‘case’ or ‘covering’ as this delightful fabric has been traditionally used in the home to cover mattresses, keeping straw and feathers in securely.
100% European Linen. Machine Washable. Designed in Melbourne. Made in Lithuania
All measurements are taken in cm on a flat garment (please double for circumference), they are made by hand and may vary slightly.
Their linen styles are made from premium European flax linen, pre-washed, and ready to wear on arrival. Some are lightly pressed - within no time the fabric will soften with wear, crinkles and wrinkles will come naturally, giving it that stunning un-ironed look that we have all come to love.
