Francine Day Dress | Petite Rose


A highlight piece in our first collection, the Francine Day Dress is the perfect harmony of romantic and modern tailoring. Subtle puff sleeves with elasticised ends lend versatility, allowing you to wear the sleeves down for a modern feel or up to create a more dramatic puff look. Francine has a low scoop neckline with dainty keyhole detailing and a functional ribbon tie. The layered elastic band under the bust creates an empire waistline leading to a full skirt with a flounced hem to complete its feminine detailing.

Machine wash cold. Wash with like colours. Turn inside out when washing. Dry in shade. Do not tumble dry. Iron on reverse using low heat setting to smooth out any creases. Mist any creases with a little water for easy ironing.
Pressed by hand using intricately carved wooden blocks, the prints rendered on the pieces are made with care and dedication. Each motif is carved carefully on teak wooden blocks, dipped into dyes before being pressed onto the fabric. This step is repeated slowly — motif by motif, colour by colour until the pattern is completed. The pigment saturates the cloth to give a unique depth of colour which is controlled by the block printer’s hands. We also rely on natural dyeing and drying methods when producing our fabrics.

Subtle variances in depth and irregularities in print and colour are natural characteristics of hand block printing and the nature of a handmade process.
Two complementary shades of blush pink pressed together to form the rose motif on a cream base. The leaves are patterned by a sage green base with forest green veins, a barely there touch to add sweetness and depth to a simple rose motif.  Hand printed on 100% GOTS certified organic cotton.
Every Moments In Bloom piece is shipped with a 100% cotton dust bag.
