"Rule 1: Find a place that you trust and then try trusting it for a while." - Immaculate Heart College Art Department Rules

This very special suite of Everyday Dresses have been custom embroidered with chainstitch and designed by our dear friends at Ft. Lonesome. Each piece is one of a kind, in a one-time production run, which means supplies for this collaboration are limited.

Read on for a description of our Everyday style.

“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 linen fabrication is our easiest cut with the roomiest body. 

The Everyday Dress comes in a selection of premium fabrics that vary in both texture and fit. Shown here in linen. See all fabric options here.
