This dress is cut from fabric custom-printed with Seaward Pines, Nantucket, a 1932 drypoint engraving by Henry Emerson Tuttle, an artist best known for his elegant etchings of birds.
The design is printed onto special paper, and then transferred using heat and pressure to become part of the fabric. This sublimation process creates a soft, breathable, vibrantly colored material.
This dress is super-comfortable, made of a smooth 82% polyester/18% spandex microfiber yarn with four-way stretch. Printed, cut, and sewn in USA.
Each dress is carefully cut and sewn, but with this stretchy fabric it's impossible to control exactly how patterns match up, or don't, across seams. Each dress is individual.
