Mainspring Dress – Nelson Molloy


Linen rayon blend. Rayon is a cellulose fibre made of old unused linen fibres. With added silk cotton frill at the bottom of the dress for added drama. 

Lily wears size 1. Lily is 180cm tall and typically an AU size 6. Size 1 is true to her size. 

Natural fibres are the perfect choice for the responsible shopper. Natural fibres will break down much easier than synthetic at the very end of their life.

Cut and sewn by JJ in her Willowbank studio. Frills hand sewn by Emily in her home studio in Brisbane, Australia. 

The body of the garment has shirred waist detail to slightly emphasise natural curves. The frills are hand sewn to add an extra uniqueness to the garment. The bottom frill is silk cotton which has been ripped to add detail. The raw edges of the frill will fray slightly with wear, but not too much.

This garment would be best hand washed and dried in the shade to add extra life. 

We could go on and on about the many different ways to wear this piece,  but the best styling advice would be to just put it on. Walk to your wardrobe, get it out and simply put it on. Any shoes, any jacket, any accessory, this piece was made for its incredible versatility, try it yourself.
