This design was inspired by simple summer daydreaming, by vivid memories of long, hot summer days, by the romantic narrative of dancing in a field of wildflowers and by the second film in my all-time favorite trilogy, Before Sunset. The STRAND dress has a slight 70’s vibe, but with clean modern lines. As a top, it can be worn loose or tucked into a skirt or high waist cutoffs. The dress features inseam pockets and a drawstring, allowing you to easily adjust the fit and feel of the dress at any point in the day.
lightweight woven fabrics with an element of drape, such as cotton, lawn, double gauze, linen, silk, etc.
◊ lightweight fusible interfacing (optional, advised for drapier fabrics)
◊ coordinating thread
◊ (dress only) +/- 3m/yds of 1cm (⅜") wide twill tape for drawstring
