Ducie Dress in Yellow Check Linen
Named after Ducie Street, just behind our Port Street shop (where the dress was designed and made) here in Manchester's Northern Quarter.
Overlooking the canal Ducie Street Warehouse stands 7 storeys high with arched entryways and stone dressings (quoins) around its edges. Those stone dressings inspired the hand-gathered frills around the arms of our Ducie Dress.
The Ducie Dress is an easy throw-over dress, worn over long sleeves when it's cold then as is for some breeze under the arms when it gets a bit warmer.
Oversized in the body, and lots of movement in the skirt.
Generous inseam pockets, secured at the waist so no sagging from filled pockets distorting the shape.
Max wash 30 - non bio.
Line/ air dry, do not tumble.
OEKO Tex certified
Linen made in small batches in Eastern Europe where there is a strong heritage of weaving fabric. The mill that made this fabric runs solely on renewable energy.
Size 1 - A 49.5 B 108cm

This item has been designed and made by us in our NOLA studio. The studio exists above our Manchester store, in the attic that was once a weavers cottage then later a pattern cutting room for the factory over the road.
