An all-season, long sleeve dress. There are actually 4 pockets in this dress!  Can you believe it?  Dreams do come true. Side pockets for your essentials and front patch pockets for style.  Sweet button detail at the back.

Sewn from striking artisan cloth; handspun, thread-dyed, handwoven and hand stitched. Natural indigo dyed yarns are woven into cloth, then passed to another community of artisans to be stitched upon with a running kantha stitch. The resulting cloth begs adoration and celebration of the craft and the skill of the artisans behind it.
