The 1003 Dress

by Debbie Baer January 13, 2019

We took our customer-favorite 1003 Shirt and turned her into a dress!

Most anyone else (read: any fast-fashion operation) would just add a few inches and call it a day–but I saw an opportunity to add a little elegance and play with the fabrication a bit to make our new dress a truly unique piece.

But before we get to that, let’s just all start on the same page–this dress, like her sis The 1003 Shirt, has pockets!

And now the differences (besides, you know, that extra length that makes it a dress):

Fancy Fabric: Our Japanese-milled, medium-weight Tencel/Merino blend twill is luxe and fluid. With wear it will soften and transform like washed silk. Naturally moisture-wicking and delightfully breathable, you can ride this natural fiber duo from frigid January right into glorious spring-time.  

Keep it Classy: A slim band collar; covered front button placket; narrower sleeve cuffs; and a slightly longer, more fluid sleeve make the 1003 Dress a class-act.

With Compliments: Deep jewel tone colors selected to perfectly compliment our 4-Pocket Un-Leggings and our Midline Crop Tops. So many looks, so little effort!

Triple Duty: Wear it buttoned up as a dress or open as a drapey, lightweight jacket. Partially buttoned it turns into an easy chemise. Because versatility adds value.

This year we’re playing with smaller runs of more products, so if you’re into the 1003 Dress don’t sit this one out! Here’s our size guide and here’s where you order.
