Inspired by “Cottage Core”, Farmhouse, and Swedish Country dress designs. Loose fitting and flowy! Simple, elegant and waiting for your dyeing magic to bring this dress to life! Fits like a full boxy cut shift dress on top (has lots of room in the waist area) but has an attached full swing skirt for a new look that is easy to wear for a lot of figure types.
The Groovy Day Dress has rolled and stitched edges throughout. No flopping facings to get in the way of your dyeing technique. Full volume skirt for swirling and twirling. Layer it with a t-shirt underneath or a long sleeved tee when the weather gets nippy. Sewn with cotton thread for perfect dyeing. Cut oversized to allow for shrinkage after the dyeing process. Dress will shrink mostly in the length. Expect up to 4 inches of shrinkage from the dress length after dyeing, washing and drying. Women’s true to fit sizing, not juniors. Design & production in the USA. Assembly in Bali.
Made in soft flowing woven 100% Rayon Light that drapes like a dream! Very wearable in the summer and is not heavy. 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 it's 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.
