  • Seersucker Shift Dress

    A true spring/summer wardrobe can hardly be called complete without a seersucker dress. Simple enough for lunch on the deck yet stylish enough for an evening cocktail party, our seersucker dress is a versatile, classic style. Seersucker is often made from a poly/cotton blend, but that doesn’t work for us. We’ve made sure this fabric is 100% natural cotton to allow for maximum breathability and the softest feel. Made in the USA - We produced a small run of these dresses right here in America in order to ensure the best quality possible. Plus, you’ll be proud to wear an America-made dress.

  • Montauk Madras Shift Dress

    Madras clothing is perfect for the casual summer lifestyle. We love this madras dress for shopping on the town or to wear to dinner or a cocktail party with friends and family. Its cut and breathable cotton fabric keep it cool in the hot weather.

    Some madras dresses are too fitted and uncomfortable. We wanted to keep ours casual and comfortable to wear for any everyday occasion. We made it sleeveless with the hemline a bit above the knee to make it laid-back and cool for the summer.

    Authentic patchwork madras. We didn't want to stray from the traditional Madras style, so we kept the authentic plaid patchwork design and incorporated fresh, bright colors. Our madras dress includes a variety of plaid materials stitched together, with a white cotton lining underneath.
    High quality zipper. The back has a hidden, white YKK zipper and a hook and eye closure.
    Made in USA. This dress was made in an American factory for the quality and conviction of Made in the USA products.
    Comfortable fit. We focused on a fitted, comfortable design that you can make more fitted with a belt.
    100% cotton. We made this dress with 100% cotton to give it comfort, a soft feel and breathability. Learn More
