You asked, I listened!!

So many of you said you were gutted you missed out on the Alexa the first time round and so I went searching for a checked fabric that was equally as beautiful and this fabric does not disappoint.

It is made up of dead-stock fabric and finished off with the sweetest broderie frilled collar, a hessian woven type fabric although uncertain of the exact make up. Fabric has been washed beforehand to ensure no shrinkages but to be on the safe side we would recommend hand washing, no dry cleaning or tumble drying and ironing on a low setting. 

Puffed sleeves, of course, with an elasticated cuff making it frill. A very subtle empire line right above the bust means this piece is a more boxy, oversized fit due to the gathering to the skirt of the dress. This also means it caters to more sizes so would recommend taking your usual size or even sizing down. 

The oversized look isn't for everybody so the Alexa dress comes with a matching belt that lets you synch it in at the waist, giving even more volume at the peplum hem. 

Fully lined with a bow tie to the back neck and a hook and eye fastening to keep the collar sitting properly. 

The standard length of this dress from neck/shoulder point is 130cm. Any amendments such as sizing, length, sleeve length (could be made short sleeved), or to add pockets, feel free to add a comment in the box when checking out (go to basket and there is a box that says order special instructions) and I would be more than happy to accommodate. Any queries about this, feel free to give me a message on instagram. 

Lead time on these dresses is up to 6 weeks to be made and price includes first class, tracked shipping once dress is completed.

Due to this being dead-stock fabric, there is a very limited number amount of these available as I am unable to source more fabric.

Care Instructions

Being conscious with our clothes doesn't just stop at what we buy, how we care for it is also really important in making our clothes last and our carbon footprint in doing so. 

We always recommend you try and get as many wears out of something as you can, don't always presume that because you've worn something it's dirty and needs washing. You can consume up to five times less energy by wearing your clothes at least three times!

When things really do need washing, you should always try to hand wash where possible. It's gentler on your clothing and doesn't use as much water or detergent. Where this is not possible, we recommend to wash on a cool gentle wash as this is not only better for the environment, as 90% of a washing machines power usage comes from heating the water alone, but goes a long way in looking after your clothes and ensuring the longevity of each garment as items are less likely to fade. 

Garments can also be dry cleaned but please do not tumble dry. It is okay to iron although please be mindful of the setting and the heat. 

A lot of time, effort and love has gone into creating each item so please put as more care back into looking after your garments.
