Philippa is the ultimate comfort dress. She is cool and breezy, with an unstructured waist that gives her a slightly oversize feel. If you prefer a closer fit at the waist, her waist belt can be pulled in for a custom fit. 

Her ¾ length sleeves can be turned back, creating a cuff. Tiny knife pleats run around her waist and, of course, she has classic Palava deep pockets.

Our linen-cotton blend gets the best of both worlds - the cool, summery feel of linen with a softer finish. The texture and weight gives our dresses a beautiful structure and shape. The cloth is woven and printed for us in Turkey, where we are proud to have visited the weavers and the growers. Please note, a slight slubbing can occur on linen. This is part of its charm and gives the cloth its coveted vintage feel. Do not pick or snip at the slubs! They are part of the fabrics character and intrinsic to its structure.

Corozo nut buttons are an ethical, sustainable and biodegradable alternative to plastic. A favourite choice in the 1920s.
