A nod to the 90s, using garage-band-worthy thermal knit. Thick, all-cotton classic waffle thermal in unbleached natural offwhite. It's a babydoll length/silhouette, so this dress might be more of a tunic for some. (The model shown is 5'10. Expect it to appear longer on most others.)
Limited to sizes remaining, we made these from a fabric sample that, however awesome, did not make it into the season's collection. In the interest of not letting fabric sit idle, we modified our popular swing silhouette and sewed as many as we could until the fabric ran out. (Now we kinda wish we had more...)
It's been garment-washed—thermal shrinks so much (mostly in length) on the first wash—so we wanted to make sure it was in its final shrunken form.
This fabric looked lumpy on a test garment with pockets, so we left them off. Clean-lined, simplified.
Sizing is flexible due to the swing shape. Hip is entirely hidden in the swish. Waffle will expand readily—a person can usually wear two sizes but must decide how they want it to fit. An XS can probably wear the small, it's certainly short enough but will be a little loose. A 1X can probably wear the XL but it will appear more body-con.
Thermal waffle has stretchy properties much like a cotton sweater that does not have Spandex. It will "grow" as you wear it and tighten up again with a wash and tumble dry.
100% Cotton Wash with whites to prevent dinge caused by dark lint. Machine wash warm or cold, tumble dry in dryer on low. Hot settings may shrink it a little more.
