Our beautiful everyday wrap dress is a closet staple.
I designed this wrap dress in my postpartum time when I was wanting to feel put together and sophisticated while also feeling comfortable in my ever-changing body. This is an all-body, ageless dress.
Our wrap dress is very very size fluid as is typical with the nature of the wrap dress. Tie it tight or tie it loose; tie it in the back or front. It is your everyday dress to be styled up or down.
We designed our wrap dress to have big billowy puff sleeves - as we do here at Honeydove! I love the feminine flare and comfort that puff sleeves bring.
We made our everyday wrap dress in our favorite comfy cozy raw silk. It is so yummy and very warming.
We are not offering any dyed dresses—only this beautiful natural creme color.
This dress is running true to size. We have three sizes: 1, 2 and 3.
I am 5'5", 120lb and typically wear a 2-4 and I wear the 1 but can also wear the 2. I would say size 1 is most like an XS-M. Size 2 is most like a S-L. Size 3 is L to XXL. So for example if you are a smaller size L then you could wear the 2 or 3. If you are sized similarly to me, you could wear the 1 or 2. Sizing up means more volume, a little more length and puff.
The Process of Creating a Dress:
Creating a dress begins with having an idea made by a sample maker. After many iterations of sample, we send it out to a pattern maker to digitize our pattern. We then have the pattern sent to our sew team for them to figure out how to sew it in larger batches than a single unit. We then receive the sew sample back and make any adjustments to how it was sewn. We then make our production ready pattern and send this to our size grader. Our size grader grades the pattern and sends it to our sew team for fabric cutting. This dress takes 5-7 yards of raw silk to produce (depending on size.) We lose about 25% of each yard of fabric in the washing process of raw silk. Being a beautiful natural fiber, our raw silk per yard averages $14 (the cost of silk has gone up about 15% with the pandemic) not including taxes (10% california tax where we sew our garments), fees and shipping costs. Each dress has multiple parts and takes approximately ~5 hours to cut and sew by an individual human operating a single needle machine. The dress is then sent to washing, where we pre-shrink the dress and then have it pressed and packed. It is then sent to us. As you can see, the dress passes through many hands and there are many people that are needing to be paid in the process of creating our beautiful dress! We calculate our dress by putting together the cost unit of each dress and all fees associated with its creation. We then make sure we are paying ourselves per unit. This is how we arrive at the cost we have. Because I produce in very small batches (around ~100 units maximum) our sewing costs are very high. Made is LA.
Measurements for this wrap dress are difficult to take. The measurements were taken by laying the dress flat with a relaxed fit (so laid out as if it was being worn.) Measurements are ball park to give you an idea of what it can fit but also you can tie these tighter as needed!
I’ve worn this dress more times than I can count. Trip to the grocery store? Wrap dress. Visiting friends? Wrap dress. Date night? Wrap dress. Feeling fancy? Wrap dress. Feeling cozy? Wrap dress. The possibilities are endless with this one. I know It will be a staple in my closet for years to come. Thank you for creating such a beautiful product that makes me feel equal parts feminine and comfortable. I know that this dress will see so many stages of my life and the fact that it can accommodate them all is priceless. I will be adding more colors to my collection!!
I absolutely adore this dress, the wonderful fit, the yumminess of the raw silk and the fun flow make it my favorite piece in my closet! I wore this dress all summer for my traveling, weddings and creek swimming trips. And now I’m going to wear it all winter with thermals underneath. So versatile and fits any occasion!
Purchased a size 1 (5’6” and 115 lbs)
I always get so many compliments when i wear this dress. I have been able to wear it 9 mos pregnant to postpartum. I have a size 3 and am probably around a size 12-14 dress with bigger boobs, so it gives more coverage on my chest which is nice because a lot of wrap dresses tend to show a bit too much cleavage. Its so so soft and cozy but also looks very sophisticated and dressed up. A total classic that feels timeless. I feel really good in it.
I love this dress. It feels so luxurious and cozy, the wrap style and voluminous sleeve are so feminine, and it’s spectacular in white. Amazing for postpartum/changing bodies. When I’m not wanting anything constricting my belly, I tie this dress in the back and love the look. I’m 5’3” and 145lbs and feel great in a size 2.
I had my eye on this dress for close to a year before I finally snagged it. I have moved away from buying fast fashion and wearing synthetic materials, and knew that I needed to add this dress to my wardrobe. However I had always bought quality clothing items used/vintage, and was hesitant to invest in this dress at full price as I had never spent that much on a single piece of clothing before. I ended up buying a size one (which Charlotte was sweet enough to find for me and tell me about as my size was listed as “sold out”) during a sale and would feel confident buying it full price next time. The raw silk is a beautifully thick fabric that feels sturdy yet elegant at the same time. I’ve worn it throughout our snowy winter and it’s kept me warm unlike any of my other dresses. I’m currently pregnant and am so excited to wear this dress as I get larger, enter my postpartum season, and beyond that as well.
For reference I am 5’6” and range from 125-130lbs pre-pregnancy and this dress in size one fits comfortably. It could perhaps be a tad smaller in the midsection, but the belt ties it up just fine!
