Muse Dress in Silk Noil
Fabric content: 100% Silk
The MBS Collection is cut and sewn by hand in Austin, TX, USA.
Our muse style, praised for its “universally flattering fit”, is an easy, sustainably made dress to throw on for any occasion. Perfect for daily wear, roll the sleeves or wear them at their natural 3/4 length. This style is also adored as a chic, ethically made maternity dress and a flattering postpartum dress.
If you prefer a more fitted look, order true to size, or to lean into the cocoon-like silhouette, we recommend sizing up.
Silk Noil is a linchpin of our collection, the perfect medium-weight fabric that is ideal for all seasons, comfortable as a stand-alone piece in the Spring, Summer and early Fall, or layered under cozy knits in the Winter. It has a matte, textural finish with the breathability of silk and accepts natural dyes beautifully. It has its own zero waste origins as it is made using the shorter fibers leftover from the manufacture of other silk fabrics.
Available in: Natural, Black, and Acacia & Lac, dyed with a unique blend of the heartwood of the Acacia Catechu tree and Lac, the resinous secretion of the tiny Laccifer lacca.
We are proud to offer this style in a size-inclusive range. Please see our size guide (below) to find your perfect fit.
In Black, Polina wears the size 3; In Acacia & Lac, Cheray wears the size 2; In Natural, Virginia wears the size 2 and Natalie wears the size 5.
