The Paloma Dress
Where buttons & a tie top meet in sweet harmony. Ties at the small of the waist and buttons down the skirt with vintage wooden buttons. Hidden mother of pearl button inside center front so the cross-over chest does not gap. Pleated shoulder seams that look nice and add room for many sized busts. Dropped sleeveless body to prevent sweat marks and add breathability, bias binded finishing. Yolked interfaced lining Deep side seam pockets that don't add bulk and allow room for everyday necessities. Just below knee length and not too clingy on the hips. 2 darts on the skirt making for a fitted look that is easy to wear. Breast feeding friendly dress.

Our favorite pollinator along side the sweetest smelling blossoms. We made it with an intention for connection and reciprocity for all who wear it, or enjoy seeing it pass by them in the streets or in the wilds.
