Raw silk, individually hand dyed in plant dyes, each dress is completely unique, with a nostalgic nod to the tie-dye eras that have come before us.

A smock-style swing dress, with a gathered full skirt, statement sleeves and a reversible neckline. With its striking balloon sleeves, gathered skirt and tie dye - it is a dress we can picture Joni Mitchell wearing on stage.

The "Joni" is crafted from 100% raw silk, which had a thicker weight perfect for winter & spring. You will also notice a bumpy, pilling texture over the entire fabric, which is characteristic of raw silk.
