Made from deadstock fabric, this rayon floral 40s inspired dress is easy to wear and easy on the planet. Deadstock is the leftover fabric from other fashion houses. By using it, we are not participating in the new fabric industry, which is very toxic to the earth.
Wrap dress, tie closure
Smocking at shoulder
Gathered cap sleeves
This is a beautiful dress. It fits true to size. It’s long, maxi length on me as expected, but that’s an easy fix. The material is soft and elegant, and while it’s not obvious, there’s a subtle vertical line to the floral print that flatters the figure. Color-wise, the background is more burnt orange verging on a pretty brown; this is more sophisticated and intriguing than a bright orange. A topper in denim, beige, navy, or brown would be great. The wrap dress style is classic, and the smocking and slightly puffed sleeves make it unique. I could see myself wearing this dress to a wedding in June, and forever. Thanks Laura & Co., it’s my first purchase and I love it.
