Dress from our BIRD collection, first limited run, size 4.
Made in Somerville, MA, USA // 100% natural // each dress is unique
Created from used cotton t-shirts carefully & locally thrifted, assembled with organic cotton thread. This project illustrates the possibilities of textiles sourced in our own backyards.
We designed it to be the uniform we would like to wear everyday - one piece, easy, comfortable, a design statement, pockets, bikable. Beach-to-city versatility.
- T-shirts have been washed & ironed before cutting & assembly to prevent future shrinkage.
- It is normal for all the cut edges (collar, sleeves & bottom) to curl up & roll. This makes for a pretty & stronger edge, which is the effect intended.
- Please be aware that this is an artisanal AND recycled item with rough seams & raw edges. It can present irregularities in texture, stitches & coloration, even tiny perforations due to past labels. As the size of our operation does not allow us to accept returns at this point, do make sure to be accepting of these characteristics before making your purchase. We are glad to help if you have any questions beforehand.
