The Penny Dress is my ode to two of my favorite clothing decades, the '30s and the '50s. The '30s influence comes through in the fitted and structured bodice, complete with subtle pleats on the seam beneath the bust, while the '50s influence comes through in the cap sleeves and full pleated skirt. Together, though the dress is relatively simple in design and un-flashy in terms of fabric, the Penny Dress feels and looks quite special, like a dress meant for afternoon strolls and birthday parties and theater performances in the park.

This dress is made of a blend of cotton and flax linen that is woven in Japan. This fabric is incredibly unique in the way that it is woven and processed — with a tight weave and a drying process in the sun, the resulting fabric is incredibly lightweight and breathable yet crispy and subtly weatherproof. The color of the fabric is a pale, dusty pink.

The Penny Dress is fitted in the bust and the waist, so use both measurements when determining your size. This style runs a touch small in the bust, so size up if your bust measures in between sizes.
