A lovely sleeveless shift that allows you to tuck your legs up on a seat while retaining your modesty. As a cool dress on a hot day, a warm layer under a smock or camise on a cold one...or simply a soft shell to sleep in, the wiseheart shift sings us home.

"The journeywoman throws her wayfinder smock over her wiseheart shift, shrugs on her wanderlust coat, wraps a shawl around her shoulders, whistles up a friendly wind and steps out into the whirled.
If the wind is fierce, she wears her weaver pants underneath.
If the gales are arctic or the night is cold or she needs to escape without baggage, she can wear them all together…westward shimmy and weaver pants under a rustling wind dancer skirt topped by wiseheart shift, wildflower camise and wayfinder smock; all enfolded by the wanderlust coat with a change of undergarments in a pocket and a toothbrush in another.
They can be worn in countless combinations, in layers to suit any climate and on any body.
The journeywoman’s clothes are for the woman who travels light, dreams of travel, sails her armchair or poetically paces the perimeter of her garden, though she may find herself wanting several variations." ~India Flint
Journeywoman is a collaboration dreamed up between Charllotte of Maiwa and India Flint while traveling in India together in early 2020.
