Coco Dress Botanica Sizes 14-16
I pride myself on creating dresses that are bold, feminine and comfortable. They must flatter your figure, uplift your mood and boost your confidence…& always include pockets. I’m lucky to do what I do for a living and this new design is nameed in honour of Coco Chanel - a style pioneer who liberated us from corsets and introduced feminist thinking and freedoms to fashion.
Each dress is individually hand cut in my Marrickville studio, then passed onto a small local sewing business for a quality finish. Lots of time and love has gone into it's creation and we hope it brings you much joy to wear!
A classic yet modern design that is neatly fitted to the body, yet still allows room to move. The pleated skirt starts at just the right point on the waist to highlight the the smallest part of the body, then drapes perfectly over the tummy area, falling just on the knee, a length that suits most women. Cap sleeves, gently scooped neck, zipper back, pockets hidden in the side seams.
Well proportioned and works on smaller bodyshapes as well as more voluptuous figures, the bodice being slightly fuller in the bust. If you are petite up top but have a bigger bottom, select your size according to your top size as the skirt has enough flow to it.
Model shown is a size 12 with larger bust, average height and wears the 12-14 here. The Coco Dress is very similar to the Liesl Dress but neckline is slightly more narrow and hemline is a couple of cms shorter. I suggest ordering the same size. Same sizing and fit as the Nina Dress.
Cotton/Poly blend with a smooth percale finish that won't crush and you may even get away without ironing! Vintage fabric in mint condition. One of a kind/limited edition. Handmade partly in my studio along with a small local sewing business in Sydney, Australia. Handwash, mild phosphate free detergent preferable
