A lonely roll of our Dogwood roses viscose was found lurking long after we made the Martha and Olivia blouses from it, so we decided we’d create a Mary! It is lovely, lightweight fabric so it is a delight to wear for dancing.
This sweet print will be sure to delight whenever you wear it. Dogwood roses in peach, ivory, terracotta and light ochre scramble over a warm taupe background. The leaves add tones of forest and sage green.
It would go great with all your brown and beige tones, all greens, peachy pinks and could even handle being paired with raspberry red if it toned in with the peach.
There is no stretch to the fabric, and even though it is drapey, you will probably need to size up if you are used to our Marys with stretch.
The fabric is 100% viscose (AKA Rayon) and as such is very true to the styles vintage origins. However it does come with a warning in that all viscose will shrink 1-2% when washed. With ironing you can recover it to its original width, but the length doesn’t revert back to the original measurement. The manufacturer recommends dry cleaning for this reason but we prefer to wash on a cool setting (30 degrees is ok) and accept the small shrinkage. You cannot put it in the dryer, not even for a little bit, as it will not iron out again! The shrinkage will be permanent!
Once you've placed your order we'll ask our UK manufacturers to finish it for you. It could take up to a week. (We'll keep you informed regarding the delivery date
