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...
Poets Dress Sapphire
I absolutely love my new dress. I ordered a medium which was a bit big. I returned it for a small and had it back in a week. Awesome. The ladies who work there are the best. I have been to their shop in Tweed ro purchase as well. I now own 5 Daughters of India dresses and love all of them. Thanks ladies.
Dress comes way too big
I sized down to a medium and the dress was still way too big. It was like wearing a puffy bag. It wasn’t cut to fit or flatter my body at all. It was just puffy. The sleeves were way too big. It looks good on the model but comes as just one big puffy piece of material that doesn’t look flattering. I will be returning and am disappointed.
Easy to wear dress. Great customer service.
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.
