If you love caftans but want something a little different to wear when you swan around the house on those lazy days - then this maxi dress is for you. Comfortable and easy to wear with a full voluminous cut for a range of body types. Breezy open shoulders with airy elbow length fluttering butterfly sleeves. Made in soft flowing 100% Rayon Light - so the dress is wearable in summer and is not heavy. Asymmetric lower hem dips down at center front and center back and curves higher up at the sides. Rolled and stitched hems throughout. No flopping facings to get in the way of your dyeing technique. Sewn with cotton thread for perfect dyeing.
The Cold Shoulder Daydream Dress is cut oversized to allow for shrinkage after the washing and dyeing process. Dress will shrink mostly in the length. Expect up to 5 inches of shrinkage from the dress length after dyeing, washing and drying. If the dress seems too long for you, wash it a few times to get the maximum shrinkage before fitting, cutting and hemming to make it shorter. Women’s true to fit sizing, not juniors. Design & production in the USA. Assembly in Bali.
100% Rayon Light fabric is a lightweight version of our Viscose Rayon. The Rayon Light fabric is a looser weave (almost like a flat gauze), making it semi-sheer when you receive it in its undyed state. Once it's dyed and washed, the fabric compacts and becomes virtually opaque. This fabric has a gorgeous drape and feels like it floats on air. Another great thing about Rayon Light is that even garments that require lots of fabric still feel lightweight on your body, rather than making you feel like you're wearing a heavy blanket.
Careful when handling it wet though! The nature of rayon, especially lighter rayon, is that the fabric tears easily when wet, then regains its strength when dry. After gentle washing and drying, we found that this fabric looked great. It requires minimal or no ironing if you pull it out of the dryer immediately - which we loved!
Care for Rayon: Rayon soaks up a lot of water and stays wet longer than other fibers, making it perfect for dyeing and batching. However, Rayon is weak when wet. When removing rayon garments from your washer, cradle the entire garment like cradling a baby. Do not lift wet garments by a corner or edge. The weight of wet fibers could cause tearing in the fabric if lifting by a corner or edge. Handwashing is usually the ideal way to launder rayon garments.
