‘Thistle’ Shift Dress in Pale Pink, White and Black on Sage
One of our most popular designs is our Thistle’ print. It features a variety of hand drawn thistles collected from our cottage in New Brunswick, Canada. Screen printed on organic jersey this dress is super cute. It has a straight silhouette so it’s universally flattering. I see it styled for fall with tights, clogs and a denim jacket or on it’s own to transition to Spring/Summer.
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 seamstresses in our Bedford, Nova Scotia studio. All fabric is heat set for longevity of wear. Thief&Bandit is truly handmade!
