The Elinor Dress is a wardrobe staple that can be worn all year round depending on how you style it. It is a timeless design inspired by the historic underdress called the “chemise.” Made from a medium weight muslin of 55% Hemp and 45% Organic Cotton, the fabric has a luxurious, linen-like feel that gets softer and softer as it’s washed and worn.
From the Designer: “My favorite way to design clothing is to sketch while watching period dramas. One day I was doing this while watching the 1995 film adaptation of Sense & Sensibility with Emma Thompson, and the Elinor dress flew out of my pen onto the paper after I saw a little white ruffle coming out of the neckline of Elinor Dashwood’s dress. I created it to be a super versatile piece; throw a belt or sash on and it’s a great day dress, put on an apron for some cottagecore vibes, or even pop a corseted bodice on top of it and wear it to the Renaissance faire! I also wanted to make it very inclusive of different body types. In these three sizes, it can fit dress sizes ranging from 0-20, and would be a lovely maternity dress as well.” - Scout Isensee
