Essence Dress Japanese Stripe
Rant Clothing is proudly 100% made in Australia
This style is being made in house by Sarah to order. Please allow 2 weeks for delivery. Rest assured as we will keep you up to date with the progress.
Oversized and decorated with a gathered textured skirt piece, the Essence dress encompasses everything we are about at Sustainable Fashion. The dress was created from deadstock fabric and the cuffs are made from an organic cotton rib offcut. When the Bestowed Harmony skirts waistbands were cut it left a narrow piece down the edge. The double thickness cuff pattern pieces fitted perfectly in this panel. The neckline is made from a small roll of leftover printed bamboo. So no new fabrics were needed, all made from bits and pieces awaiting a perfect style to be created.
These dresses have been pre-washed in rainwater here at our studio.
