This Cavatina dress is the perfect dress for any occasion as it can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. This is a fan favorite amongst my clientele selling out numerous times on social media.

What makes the Cavatina dress so special? This particular design can be worn in either direction with the tie at the back or the front worn as a "pussy bow" for lack of a better term! The shell of the dress fits several sizes with sized separate "chemise" linings. The purpose of the "chemise" is to protect the shell of the dress making it more sustainable as it needs less frequent washing. Simply throw the chemise into the washer and put it back under the shell which reduces wash cycles making it more eco-friendly and will extend the life of this gorgeous dress.

The draping of this dress is stylish, modern and comfortable for your active lifestyle and packs down to the size of a scarf. There is a chic keyhole for comfort and elegance. The lining of the dress is cut to fit perfectly inside the dress without disturbing the keyhole or showing your undergarments. This is my favorite fabric as it is as light as a silk scarf but is a durable opaque poly/spandex blend imported from Italy (also utilizing deadstock fabrics). Since launching "by VINNIK" I've made a few slight alterations to the design of this incredible dress!
