The Dita dress, regular length or maxi?
Posted on November 28 2013
The Dita dress has to be the most comfortable styles to wear. Made from Australian milled Organic cotton jersey, it has two pockets, a deep scoop neck and cutaway racer back that is not too low under the arms. I like to cover up that 'not so nice area' where your arms join the body and the skin can do 'not so nice things'! Know what i mean?
We have run this dress for the last couple of summers and many people have told me how much they love it. I love it as well but every time a friend of mine visited me wearing it, i looked at her with envious eyes. She would get out of the car and swoon down my driveway with the Dita dress flowing around her ankles. She is around 5ft, so the dress is a maxi length on her. On me (just under 6ft tall) it is mid calf. I was happy with it that length until I saw how wonderful it would look as a maxi. So this season I have added a new version of the Dita called the Dita Maxi. I have lengthened it by 25cm. As it has a raw hem you can simply cut off a few cms if it is too long on you. Just lie it on a table, mark where you want to cut, and chop it off. Allow for loosing 2-3cms due to the knit rolling up again when washed, but that is all you need to do, no sewing. The nature of the knitted fabric means it will not ladder or fray.
The Dita dress (regular length) comes in black, charcoal, grape, indigo and white, which is a heavier weight fabric to the darker colours so it is not see thru.
The Dita maxi comes in black, grape and indigo all with contrast charcoal binding.
Our 'Vegan Eco- Model' Amanda Rootsey is very tall, so the dress lengths show how it would look on a tall person and she has heels on in the above pics.
The Dita dress is sleeveless however if you want to cover up your arms, just pop a Quirk shrug over it. Also you can layer a long skirt under the regular length Dita dress to give a totally different look.
