Lace Trimmed Ruffle Maxi Dress in ‘Desert Peyote’
Our ‘Desert Peyote’ maxi dress is brand new for Spring/Summer 2019 and we couldn’t be happier with this beautiful dress. There are so many unique details, from the three bottom tiers of ruffle trimmed with lace to the stretch velvet straps and sweet heart neckline, this is one epic gown. We see this being worn to a formal summer event like a prom or wedding. It’s so stunning but also incredibly comfortable. It’s made from hand printed organic stretch jersey and has sewn in cups so you can wear this braless. It’s also universally flattering; is cinched at the waist and flares so it’s got amazing movement, perfect for the dance floor!
Our newest print for Thief&Bandit swim 2019 is our ‘Peyote’ design. Printed on black fabric with the beautiful jewel tones of plum, emerald green and royal blue it’s an elegant, yet fun choice for for a formal dress. The ‘Peyote’ print is a mystical desert scene with some cute peyote buttons hanging about.
All Thief&Bandit fabric is printed in small batches and all items are made to order so if you are interested in this style but in a different print convo us for a custom listing and we’ll make it happen. Also, if you are interested in more length we will be happy to quote you a price for that adjustment.
As our fabric is an organic cotton-spandex blend, our garments have a large amount of stretch (about 5 extra inches.) 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 seamstresses in our downtown Halifax studio. All fabric is heat set for longevity of wear. Thief&Bandit is truly handmade!
