Details

Pretty pleats add graceful drape and soft femininity, but the story behind this swingy sleeveless dress is what makes it truly special. Gently shaped and deliciously soft, it's one of those rare knitted dresses you can slip on, dress up with a scarf or sweater - and instantly look perfectly pulled together. 

  • 100% organic Pima cotton interlock
  • Machine wash
  • 39-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.

Great fit & 100% Cotton
The cut is beautifully done! I am eagerly watching for neutral and pastel colors in this style! 5ft 3" and 107lb the xs is fitted but not tight. To top it off, my unfortunately sensitive skin is happy in 100% cotton.

This is a great, comfy dress
"The cotton is a nice weight and oh-so-soft. And it's a nice silhouette. The gentle flair of the skirt keeps it from being too clingy. I don't usually wear sleeveless tops or dresses, so I dressed this up with a short sleeve top. I also realized it I can probably wear it this fall with a turtleneck underneath it with boots!

I love the mission of Fair Indigo and I love the opportunity to support fair trade. Yes, this may be pricier than what you'll pay elsewhere, but it's really great quality."
