This is our first ever side slit dress design, launched new for 2023.  Incorporating a distinct summer vibe, the dress features our trim style neck and arms.  As no dress should ever be made without pockets, we have two side seam beauties to ensure you have the full rebel swag as you walk.  Unique to our zero waste design techniques you can wear this dress either way - yip there is no front or back..... so you can decide if you would prefer the side slit on the left or the right.  We just love flexibility!  Also don't forget you can pair this with our "one" belt listed in our accessories section.

Available in 3 sizes, this is a limited batch of our Fire & Embers version of the the Fire Elements tartan.  The side slit is 14" up from the hemline.

The fabric has been woven by us at our mill using merino yarns and finished in our little sewing suite, at the hands of amazing tartan rebels!

  • Small - 20.5" ((fitting hips or bust up to 38")
