If you liked the Monstera Bag, you might like this kimono-style dress that continues the leafy theme.
It combines three fabrics from dresowka.pl, with the garment built around Tropic Leaves - a strikingly pretty retro digital printed designed by Zuzanna Kiełbasa of two shades of green Monstera leaves on a white background.
Designed for light sweatshirts as well as dresses, it is made from a combination of a composite cotton yarn and silicone-based plasticisers (92% cotton, 8% elastic) that produce an exceptionally smooth and soft feel.
I split it by two sashes, with the olive green one in the same cotton/elastan fabric. The other, in gold lame, is 80% polyester, 16% viscose and 4% spandex.
The bat sleeve is designed to make it cool enough to wear over a bikini in the summer sun.
That was the plan at least. As the Saharan heatwave hit Crete while we were on holiday there, even this loose dress was too warm at times.
However, I braved the high 30s for a photo shoot at the beautiful Agia Fotini beach. This wee oasis of calm and quiet on the south of the island was the perfect setting to show the Monstera Dress in full bloom.
