Poet Mini Dress
The only of its kind
Our order of hand loomed fabric was distributed throughout an entire village in Southern India, roughly 100 homes worked on piecing the fabric for these garments together, providing employment and supporting the continuance of this tradition that holds an expected life-span of only 10-15 years. The Poet Series styles are destined to become vintage due to the rare exclusivity of hand-loomed fabrics in modern times.They are truly an ode to slow fashion, watch the video below to learn more...

Poet Mini Dress ~ Sapphire
What I love the most with the poet mini dress is the poofiness of the sleeves. The sleeves are perfect but would be more comfortable if the underarm seam was a little lower. It feels a bit tight around the under arm. I was hoping for more of the same kind of poofy comfortable feeling in the body of the dress. But I found it to be a bit too fitted and a little shorter than expected; eventhough I ordered one size up from what I usually do. I wonder if a slightly lighter weight fabric would flow and drape better. I however do love the sapphire colors/pattern and design and look forward to maybe some tweaks being done and discovering more color/pattern options in this style.
A summer/fall staple
This dress is unique and versatile. I reach for it again and again and will be able to wear it into early fall. I sized down one size for a perfect fit.
Poet mini dress chic
I adore the new poet mini dresses. I have two of the three patterns. They are so chic! I just throw one on with a Cute shoe, sandal or sneaker and I feel like a fashion maven. The material is exquisite. Light and comfortable but substantial. The loose outline of the dress leaves me feeling comfortable and relaxed. Not worried about the garment fitting too tightly across my less than perfect body parts. I also feel like I can layer this dress with tights and under shirts to wear this into the colder North East US winters. Well done, DOI!
Perfect style for summer and the shoulder seasons. Beautiful fabric. Runs a bit large.
I bought both!
