Folklore Boheme Slip Dress



Airy and ethereal, Folklore is our nod to the romance of the Arts and Crafts movement, and the beauty of “non-finito” — art that is a work-in-progress. The printed Bird-of-Peace comes from original embroidery exquisitely hand stitched by Vancouver Island fiber artist Kim Donohoe, who used single-ply thread to capture every detail of the intricate plumage. Inspired by a 19th century embroidery panel found in the British Museum, it is a marvel of craftsmanship. The background panels come from 3 separate works created in 1885 by famed British textile designer and artist William Morris. All 3 are unfinished, and Morris’s original pencil and ink sketch marks can be seen where the designs remain incomplete. We left these in intentionally, to celebrate the profound beauty of the artistic process! The result feels like a fairytale you can wear.

You can also wear it two ways, with the printed Bird-of-Peace on the front of the bodice, or the back — depending on your mood.

Please note: The nature of our soft bamboo/wood viscose means it’s slightly sheer, so we recommend layering it with our Étoile slip (or any other slip you have) when wearing it with bare legs.

100% bamboo/wood viscose. Machine wash gentle or handwash and hang to dry. Iron to finish if needed.

Adjustable straps. Dress measurements: S/M — length 132cm at shortest strap adjustment, 142cm at longest. Width 52cm (across bust, underarm to underarm), 54cm (across waist seam).

Our redhead model is 5’9”, and is wearing a size S/M and our brunette model is 5’5”, and is wearing a size L/XL for reference.
