A smock-style swing dress, with a gathered skirt, statement sleeves and a reversible neckline. With its striking balloon sleeves, raw silk fabrication, stunning colour and tie dye - it give a nostalgic nod to the 70s & dancing in the fields at Woodstock.
The "Joni" is crafted from 100% raw silk, which has a thicker weight perfect for all-round wear (summer eves and winter days). You will also notice a bumpy, pilling texture over the entire fabric, which is characteristic of raw silk.
deep crossover v-neck / or reverse for a scoop neckline & low V back

thick hem at base as a stylised feature and to give weight to the dress
