“Gisèle” Dress Red Organic Cotton
There’s a few dresses in this collection that could be granted the title THE dress of this summer and the Gisèle is definitely up there. Flowy, puffy, full of the drama and the frills, this is the kind of dress that you’ll be able to wear for years to come and you will still feel special every single time you wear it. And for those who aren’t fans of the off shoulder look, the upper frill is elasticated, so you can choose whether to wear it on or off shoulder – looks absolutely adorable either way.

- The red voile is a bit thicker than the pastel pink & cloud print and it has more opacity, so items in these colours are not doubled/lined as we do not consider it necessary, especially if you live in a climate with really hot summers. By itself, the fabric’s opacity is around 80%. If you would like to bring the opacity to 100%, you can do so by adding lining when choosing the item’s specifications before adding it to your cart
- All gathers made by elastic thread or elastic bands for ease of comfort and the shoulder straps are adjustable via metallic accessories (no plastic)
