This beautiful dress is made in a luxuriously silky 100% bamboo. It features a gently fitted style with a full skirt, short sleeves, and hidden hip pockets. The upper bodice is reinforced with underlining to help extend the life of the garment and preserve it's shape. Closes with a zip at back. The dress is hand printed with a motif of falling autumn leaves by Melbourne illustrator and graphic designer Sarah Adkins. Each individual leaf is hand-stamped onto the fabric, meaning that the pattern is truly unique.

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.

While bamboo can be machine washed, I do recommend hand washing all my garments wherever possible, as this will help to extend their life. Wash in cool water, using a mild detergent.

All Frances Baker clothing is individually handmade from start to finish by myself in Melbourne, Australia. I try to run Frances Baker according to my own views that clothing should be long lasting, reflective of individual style and creativity rather than trends, and be at minimal cost to the environment.
