‘Cactus’ Twirling Dress in Dusty Pink, Yellow Ochre, Blue Mint and Green on Black
Such a magical little dress! Our twirling dresses have been one our of most popular items. I’ve had several Mamas tell me that their little girls want to wear them every day. The skirt is full so it has the perfect about of ‘twirl,’ your little one won’t want to take it off. This special little dress is perfect for summer weddings, birthday parties or just lounging about, guaranteed to get compliments all around!
The ‘Cactus’ design is the illustrative work of Amie Cunningham, the designer behind Thief&Bandit and features several multi colored cacti in a desert scene. This dress is printed with four colors in total, each color hand printed using giant silkscreens, the process and outcome make the garment completely unique and beautiful. Truly handmade, this dress is one of a kind.
Please refer to our size charts when choosing a size and be aware that the measurements are of un-stretched garments. As our fabric is an organic cotton-spandex blend, our garments have a large amount of stretch. Please allow for 10% shrinkage in a hot washer or dryer. To avoid shrinkage, machine wash cold and tumble dry low or lay flat.
A bit about our process – All Thief&Bandit fabric is hand printed on beautiful, soft organic jersey with non-toxic water based ink. The prints start as ink drawings and are burned into giant silk screens. We print the fabric in the attached workshop of our house and all garments are sewn by our trusty and talented seamstress, Carly, in our downtown Halifax studio. All fabric is heat set for longevity of wear. Thief&Bandit is truly handmade!
