Wandering lines gown

Wandering lines gown


Sedimentary layers, cracks in our aging plaster, checked glass;  all inspired lines for these drawn Indigo stripes that wander and falter before falling back into sync. 

This gown is woven in the natural white of West Texas organic cotton. Indigo details derive from a 2014 crop farmed by Rebecca Burgess of California and dyed in a fermentation vat kept by Kristine Vejar of A Verb for Keeping Warm. Plain weave yields a lightweight cloth you'll want to wear whenever its warm. A deep side slit at the hem allows for freedom of movement and kick. 

Each garment is hand sewn by Jisun Lee using a freehand approach to single needle construction. Meticulous tailoring details include french seams throughout the garment. Neck and arm openings are bound in hand woven bias. This high-craft approach to tailoring requires advanced sewing expertise and retains beautiful evidence of the hand.  

  • 100% organic cotton grown in West Texas and spun in North Carolina woven
  • Hand woven in Hillsborough, NC on an Ahrens Violette mechanical dobby loom

Sizing and Fit: Recommended for US size 0-6/8; Bust: 19", Length 53"

Care: We've washed the dress in warm water and tumble dried it on low to finish the weaving process. We recommend that you wash it by hand in cold water with gentle soap. A good pressing with steam will return the cotton to it's current lustrous state. 

Minor imperfections are inherent to the hand crafted process and should be celebrated as such.
