The Chela Dress is a knee-length column dress with a keyhole tie and balloon sleeves.

The sleeves are a raglan style which creates ease through the shoulders. They are elbow length and have a balloon puff that creates amazing volume. The end of the sleeves are finished with elastic which can be pushed up the arm to create extra volume.

The dress is a column shape but has a slight a-line cut through the skirt to help with the fit through the hips. It also has side seam pockets.

The Chela dress has a high, keyhole neckline with an adjustable tie detail. It is made out of 100% Linen.

Designed and made in Melbourne, Australia. 

Fit Notes

Fitting true to size. Easy fit as it is a pull over, column shaped dress. Designed to be worn loose, can size up if you like super oversized. Fits similar to the Poet and Hazel dresses, so you can take the same size.

Gemma wears a S. She is 179cm tall with a bust of 81cm. She wears an AU 8 in most brands. The S was the sample available, we would recommend she wears a XS.
