Girl From Ipanema mini dress - size L/XL
This is a repurposed vintage towel dress. Originally designed to be worn as a beach cover up, my dresses are generously sized so you can change out of wet swimwear from underneath... and they're cute enough that you can stop to grab some food after a day of swimming or surfing. I personally also wear towel dresses as regular dresses, they're not just for the beach!
This dress is handmade from two vintage Ipanema towels, it hits at knee length (depending on your own height, please see all measurements listed below) with a fringed hem. It has pleats across the front of the dress and a generous sized hood.
Each vintage piece had long life as a towel and has been upcycled and handmade into a wearable terrycloth piece of clothing. This dress is an oversized style with drop shoulders and wide 3/4 length bell sleeves, and a wide scoop neck and hood. Can be worn oversized for petite bodies or fits up to a L/XL based on measurements below.
