Description

Details

Add high-contrast color block accents and a classic shape becomes suddenly sharper, more sleek and just a little sporty. Raglan cap sleeves allow dance-all-night freedom and the swirly skirt makes every move even more graceful. But what makes this dress even more impactful? It's made at a fair trade family business that pays a living wage to people who are lifting themselves out of poverty, thanks to your purchase. To top it off, it’s made from organic Peruvian Pima cotton - among the softest on the planet. Look good. Feel good. Do good. 

  • 100% organic Pima cotton interlock
  • Machine wash
  • 38-inch length (size Medium)
  • Gently shaped
  • Fairly made in Lima, Peru
Fair Indigo Premium Fabrics
Peruvian Pima cotton is one of the softest yet strongest on earth – your dress will feel wonderfully soft right out of the bag and endure beautifully for years with minimal shrinking or pilling. The ingenuity of our organic interlock fabric is its ability to stretch and retain shape beautifully without spandex. This is called mechanical stretch – achieved by the structure of the knitted yarns themselves. The fabric is also washed before the garment is cut and sewn, an uncommon but very beneficial process. It not only insures your dress won’t shrink, but also prevents puckering and twisting around seams that often happens in your dryer when fabric shrinks but threads don’t.
 
How does it do good?
Our non-GMO organic cotton is grown on a small family farm in the climactically ideal Ica region of Peru. It’s then milled and knit in GOTS certified mills that are leaders in water recycling and earth-friendly practices. Our dyes are Oeko-tex certified - gentle on the earth, farmers, garment workers, and you. The dresses are meticulously fashioned in a small fair trade workshop where employees are paid fairly and treated, like family, with dignity and respect.

Love this dress!
I recently purchased this dress in Boysenberry and absolutely love it! The fabric is soft and feels very high quality, the color is great (especially for those who look good in fall tones), and the fit is extremely flattering, and the length is right above the knee like they say in the description. I absolutely love this company - it's values and ethics, the quality of the products, the price for the quality, and the fit of their clothing. One day I hope to own at least one of everything they sell for women!!

Great fit, great dress, careful with the green color
I love this dress! I already had the long-sleeve version, so I had a feeling it would fit well, and it does (I wear a medium in most Fair Indigo dresses). My only complaint is that when the green fabric gets wet, it looks like it's stained -- it isn't, and it goes back to its regular color once it dries, but for someone messy like me, I have to be really careful not to let a drop of water touch it when I'm out and about. The boysenberry color does not have this problem.

Nice dress
I like this dress a lot. At first when I put it on, I was a bit disappointed and thought 'doesn't look as cute on me as it does on the model'. But I wore it to work today and got 3 compliments. Also, I had no trouble with the sizing. I normally wear a medium on most things, and the medium of this dress fit me fine too.

Love it
love the fabric and the styling - especially the longer length (I like things right at my knee, rather than above). I'm considering buying a second color.

Very short waisted
Extremely shortwaisted for my 5'9" frame. Otherwise I loved it. I was very soft and I was extremely disappointed I could not wear it!

Poor size guidelines for this garment.
Very pretty dress, but not as described sizewise. I very carefully measured myself and looked closely at the sizing information. Despite my misgivings, I ordered size Medium, because that is what the guidelines suggested. I normally take a size XS.
