Colette Women's Dress Block Print with Swedish Blue Hand Smocking


The Colette Dress, for women of style and substance. Named after the French writer famed for capturing the complexity of female existence in prose, comes a dress that celebrates femininity in every stitch and swish. This midi dress is made from beautiful block print linen. The high neck, tiered skirt and and keyhole opening create a flattering vertical silhouette that is softened and enhanced by a wealth of unapologetically feminine details - a garland of hand stitched trellis zigzags in Swedish blue around the neckline, fluted flutter sleeves finished with hand cross stitching, soft frills around the jawline and a sash tie at the waist. And because we know ladies of substance always have more beneath the surface, the Colette dress is finished with a full cotton lining and pockets, no doubt replete with all the weapons of our feminine arsenal be they pens, poetry, pocketbooks or phones.

Please note this dress does not have an elasticated waist. It has a looser a-line shape fastened with a generous sash tie to offer a more versatile fit across sizes.
