Overshot dress, Natural

Overshot dress, Natural


Overshot as intervention along the plainly woven surface, fragment as suggestion of weather and time. An iconic American woven structure, Overshot requires two shuttles, one to form the ground cloth and one to form the pattern. These fragments are drawn freeform during the weaving process.

This dress is woven in the natural white of West Texas organic cotton. 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.
