Product Details

We love designing the perfect high summer dress each season - finding the perfect mix of colour, cool shapes and materials that cope with the heat of the season. This dress ticks all of the boxes but can then work into cooler months with the tank shape sitting perfectly under knits and jackets. This is a dress you can throw on any time for any occasion.

  • ELK preferred fibre
  • Original ELK print with varied scale
  • Waist seam with gathered skirt
  • Side pockets

The nature of how we create our ELK original Elme print makes every piece unique so the item you receive may vary slightly from the one shown.

    Material & Makers Notes


    100% Organic Cotton

    This garment is made from certified organic cotton. The cotton is grown using methods that lessen the impact on our environment, replenish and maintain soil fertility, decrease water usage and build biologically diverse agriculture. Crops are not tested with pesticides, insecticides or herbicides and are not genetically modified.


    This garment was designed by the ELK team and made by Tongxiang Jimmy Fashions in China. Jimmy has worked with us since 2010 making woven and knitted apparel. He has a team of 80 plus workers, the majority of which are women. He is a member of Sedex, receiving regular auditing at the factory. Jimmy is actively working with us to make workplace improvements and operate an ethical and sustainable business. We visit Jimmy at least twice a year and he additionally comes to visit our team annually.

    Size and Fit

    This dress has been designed for a relaxed, comfortable fit - it is not a body-hugging design. We recommend you take your usual size as the fit is concentrated around the bust and armhole. The simple turned-up hem allows for a simple adjustment too if you want to take it up and make it shorter.
