Wrap Dress - Polka Dot Print
Our wrap dress is one of those pieces that has truly stood the test of time! It has been a classic silhouette since almost the very start of The ANJELMS Project, and for good reason. Our wrap dress is a classic cut that flatters any body shape, height, or size, and because of its simple ties, it is modular and can be tied and styled in so many different ways. With a round neck collar and wide sleeveless cut around the arms, this tends to run a bit small around the bust, so if you are between standard sizes, we always suggest going up a size. This will not affect the fit of the rest of this divine dress, as you can always tie it tighter around the waist!
Featured this time around in our white polka dot print over hand-dyed indigo silk cotton, the wrap dress is one of those outfits you can throw on with ease and just run out the front door in 5 minutes if need be! This pattern looks its best with a wide-brimmed hat for an elegant feminine look, or with bold jewellery and heavy boots in the cooler months.
Because hand-dyeing practices are so precise, there have been many metres of silk cotton that haven’t met the standard for previous collections. We came up with this initiative with Fiona to block print iconic Anjelms prints over the indigo dyed fabric in white, which works with the imperfections to create a new story in each garment.
Made from repurposed fabric from The Stitching Project, this collection means a lot to us, as we believe sustainability means that no part of the production goes to waste, and through our ‘Waste Not Want Not’ Program, we are able to turn faults into features.
