This unique soft cotton fabric is created through the ancient dabu method of block printing which is very similar to batik. The fabric begins as white, then a patterned block is dipped in mud and stamped onto the fabric. Next the entire piece is dipped in indigo dye and the portions where the mud has been applied resist the color penetration leaving the floral design intact. Pieces are then washed several times to remove excess dyes and mud.
The Isadora Impero dress features an empire waist with a drawstring that allows the silhouette of our gorgeous design to fall beautifully and flow naturally.
This dress features a generous cut which will flatter most figures .The dress tends to run a little large.
