This beautiful dress is made in a luxurious silky bamboo sateen. It features a gently fitted style with a full skirt, short sleeves, and hidden hip pockets. Zip closure at back. The bodice has a reinforced yoke to extend the life of the garment by stabilising the upper bodice. The fabric is hand printed with a motif of falling autumn leaves by Melbourne illustrator and graphic designer Sarah Adkins.

Being 100% bamboo, the dress benefits from all of bamboo's amazing qualities including a soft silky texture, exceptional breathability, high absorbency, as well as some antibacterial and anti-odour properties! This makes it an extremely wearable fabric that is comfortable year round.

Bamboo is also a sustainable fibre as the plant is easily grown without requiring pesticides and grows very quickly in favourable conditions.

This dress is from my Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection. You can read more about the collection on my blog, here: http://www.francesbaker.com.au/2012/04/autumnwinter-2012-lookbook.html
