Didi is like the younger sister of our Diana Caftan. One who steals her clothes and re-tools them for her own needs. This desire to feel something bigger, but also some weight (for security) has been lingering for far too long. Enter Didi. Designed to be poked, prodded and rearranged to your delight, pair her with a bra meant to be shown (or go bare - we do!), a vintage slip, pull those wings and tuck them under your bra strap for a free range of motion and then tuck the sides into ya draws so it doesn't get caught in your bike tire. This caftan is meant to be enjoyed and lived in. It's meant to call attention so anyone and everyone will say hello and after so much time spent hiding indoors, you'll feel compelled to start waving like a Texas Beauty Queen from the back of a convertible.
Didi measures (flat) 43.5" across, 49.5" at full length and has a 7.5" arm opening.
Lazy Spring fabric is Deadstock Fuji Silk (textured), found right here in Los Angeles. It is a bit sheer (Lu has on a nude vintage slip underneath for photos). Don't let this stop you from letting it all hang out.
CARE: Hand wash cold. Hang to dry.
Please expect 7-10 business days for sewing, packaging and shipping after placing your order. This is a one-woman show.
**Deadstock fabric is designer fabric excess, often over-produced or produced for sampling and never used, that can often end up in landfills in an effort to save space as the amounts are too small for larger designers to use. This works out perfectly for Under the Muumuu as it's preferred to keep collections small, much like treasured vintage pieces.
