Merlette Martel Dress with Trim

This product is unavailable

One of our most popular styles, the Martel is a tunic dress  in black with a loose, voluminous fit that hits just above the knees. As our take on a traditional shirtdress, this style features a covered button closure down the front, with tiered panels at the sides. Soft to the skin, the Martel is made of our signature Pima cotton lawn with starburst Sashiko embroidery, which is a form of traditional Japanese folk stitching.
