LAVERNE DRESS / MONOPRINT

Size

We haven't been so proud of a piece in a long time. 

What started as a tiny sketch on paper evolved into inventing an entire new process of painting on our fabric, and we're in love. 

Each dress takes two of us to paint. We work on the floor and pour each color onto a cut dress. The next piece of the dress is then carefully placed on top. We layer a knit fabric on the bottom (this later becomes Pinny tanks), and layer the top with strips of paper (that becomes wrapping paper!)- both top and bottom layers absorb excess paint and become gorgeous by-products.  We then gently press the entire surface of the dress, easing the ink through to all layers. Each dress is a monoprint - meaning only one print is made and it's totally unique. Watch a video of the process here

 

The results are show-stopping! This dress is magical and will turn every head. Made from a crisp 100% cotton poplin, it's great for summer or fall layering. Our Laverne Dresses have an elastic neckline that can be worn as is, or draped over one shoulder for extra Miami resort vibes. Two side pockets hold your tip money for the pool boy.
