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.

Classy, Comfy Dress
I have the cranberry in XL and black in L. I love the shape of the dress but the XL is a bit clumsy, it feels like it's hanging really heavy off my shoulders. The large is perfect. The elastic(?) in the waist draws the silhouette in nicely and the neckline is elegant (on the L, bra straps aren't noticeable. The XL has a larger neckline which doesn't hide them as well.) The material is soft and, as far as I can tell, thicker than the faux wrap dress material.

Easy, Feminine Dress
Just as described, looks just like the photos. I'm 5'10" and this dress has a nice amount of coverage, to about mid-knee on me. My measurements put me in a size medium, which fits as I expected. I didn't see it in the description, so thought I'd mention that the dress has a short overlapping vent in back for walking ease. After two all day wearings it's slightly baggy in the seat, but not bad.

Comfy classic
This dress is beautiful and the fabric is so soft. I am 5'5", size 8, and the large fits me beautifully. It does go below the knees by about 2 inches, but I like my skirts a bit long for work. Could easily be hemmed for a shorter look. I love that I found a comfy dress with sleeves. It feels like wearing pjs, but looks so polished and even a bit retro (late 70s-early80s). I ordered the black, and it is a truly classic dress I anticipate wearing for many years.

I really love the style of this dress. The boat neck, the drape, the length. Only problem is the inner tank sewn in. It is too bulky and tight. I am 5'3", 112lbs and bought a x-small. It sounds like it is ripping stitches every time I wear it.... I think it would be fine without the inner tank.

Soft and pretty green!
I ordered the green in XS and the top part fit perfectly on my smaller frame. The dress is displayed as below the knee and on me (5'2") is was much longer. I had 6 inches hemmed off and it is now perfect! It can be worn in all seasons in California and is a lovely addition to my work wardrobe.

Perfect every"wear" dress!
I have been looking for a versitle dress that can be for work, travel or dressed up for a date night, and this is it! The cotton is SO soft, and fits beautifully. The length is below the knee, and very elegant, and the fabric doesn't wrinkle at all! I am so happy with this, wish it was still available in the green!

Simply elegant!
Just received my dress today. I ordered my usual size M and the fit is great! The drape of the material and the style of the dress is so elegant. So glad I purchased this dress!

Keeping it, but...
I love the forest green color (it's hard to find!), and the knit is soft but substantial. The inner cami may help the drape of the dress bodice, but I find it more annoying than anything else because I tend to get my arms caught in it the wrong way when I put the dress on. Also, I always have to wear some kind of scarf with this because, let's face it, boatneck tops NEVER cover bra straps.

Great! Love it
Love this dress! Not too snug, not too slouchy. Looks easy and elegant. I've gotten a lot of compliments!
