Nova Dress in Undyed Kala Cotton
A dress you can live in. Inspired by its counterpart the Nova Top, the Nova Dress features the same easy-wearing dolman sleeves and generous neckline, plus a wonderfully drapey relaxed skirt hand-smocked with a complex diamond pattern that shirrs the fabric at the waist.
Made from handwoven, wild growing and naturally organic rainfed Kala cotton in a fine, subtle twill. Left undyed in its natural state, remnants of the cotton plant create lovely and subtle variations in the fabric. Features elegant hand-embroidered running stitch detail on the collar.
