Please Note: this is a Nursing version of our Everyday Dress, it features an extended neckline that can be opened and closed by utilizing concealed snaps below the neck opening.
About The Mother Series: We are constantly transforming between roles as women as we journey through all of the stations of our life; from managers, daughters, employees, sisters, friends, lovers, dreamers, doers, advocates. Few transitions are so dramatic as the transformation into motherhood. Our body grows to accommodate a being of our making as we become both vessel and woman, shouldering our own identities with the emergence of a new being from within us. Then to postpartum life, where our body transforms yet again, returning to itself, but also becoming something new, different. The negotiation continues.
View the complete series and read the interviews of five women exploring how clothing can make lives easier, solidify identities and create a constant amidst change here.
This collection of Everyday Nursing Dresses extends the versatility of our Everyday Dress design to women who are breastfeeding and celebrates the time in a women's life where the sacred connection between child and mother is brought to the forefront of their daily lives. The dress features discretely placed snaps for easy opening that will also securely keep the neckline closed (even with tugs from baby's curious hands) when not nursing. Our all natural linen fabrication lends itself to traits in durability, versatility and is the easiest to clean.
About the Item:
“Clothes made from geometric shapes - squares, triangles, rectangles, and circles - have eminent advantages over conventional dress: …They would end our artificial categories (white tie, black tie, afternoon, etc.). They can fulfill any number of functions. We shall again become aware of the inherent beauty of uncut materials” - Bernard Rudofsky
Consider the Everyday style the North Star of our collection, the style that started it all, that guides the direction, mood and energy of our entire line. Humble geometry done just so, it conforms to innumerable body types, flatters and comforts while lending confidence to the women inside. It's on our desert island wish list, and, after all of these years, is still our best seller. Each edition we revisit the cut, proportion, fabrications and natural dye formulas for this style, so check back with us to see what's new.
The Everyday Dress comes in a selection of premium fabrics that vary in both texture and fit. Shown here in linen, our easiest cut with the roomiest body. .
