lisbon in cornflower
a cool blue to keep you cool all summer: this lightweight 100% cotton maxi is the flowy dress we've been wanting to make for some time. pair it with a jacket for crisp evenings, and adjust the drawstring sleeves as you wish.
body is lined in 100% cotton and is not sheer; bottom skirt is unlined and semi-sheer.
this fabric is a handloom method called jamdani. the "buti" motif throughout is woven into the fabric as the base is created on the loom, a difficult skill to master and impossible for a machine to replicate. each "buti" is slightly different and varies from weaver to weaver. this fabric is woven in homes in small villages in india and your purchase is helping keep this dying jamdani craft alive and helps us give consistent work to weavers and their communities, where everyone plays a role in the handloom process.
take care when cleaning this fabric. always wash in cold water with a gentle detergent (no bleach!). it will air dry nicely. warm iron if needed. you can also dry clean.
