A Classic SF Dress in Sustainable Fabric from She-bible

She-bible Organic Classic Dress

She-bible is a label that designs and makes clothing in San Francisco. Turns out they are making their best-selling dress in an organic cotton, hemp and lycra blend. The fit on this dress is fabulous thanks to a bias cut panel, which forms a pretty cowl neck. Ties at either side of the torso allow for a custom body-hugging fit. Pretty and elegant, this look will take you easily from day to night.
