We Designed The Summer Dresses Of Our Dreams

The Daisy Dress in Navy. Take a closer look here.

With the festive season fast approaching, the whole Well Made Clothes team has been on the hunt for the perfect summer dress. We all agreed that this dress should be comfortable, versatile and cute — the kind of thing that you can wear to Christmas lunch with the in-laws and a three-day festival in the bush. Instead of wasting all our time searching for this mythical dress when we could be doing important work stuff, we decided to make it ourselves! 

We collaborated with our good pal Jillian Boustred on the summer dress of our dreams, well, summer dresses. The Sydney-based designer helped us bring not one, but four, perfect summer dresses to life. We all agreed on the shape — a classy (and comfy) wrap dress with a subtle puffy sleeve — but we couldn't agree on the length or the colour, so we came up with a few different options. The 100% linen dresses come in two prints and lengths. There's the sweet gingham mini dress:

Jillian Boustred makes all of these dresses locally in Sydney. So, when you purchase a dress, the money that you spend goes into the pockets of local makers and family-operated businesses.

"A lot of family-owned businesses are having to shut down because there's just not enough demand for their services," Boustred explains. "So it's really important to support Australian-made labels in order to keep the industry alive.

We couldn't agree more. That's why we decided to collaborate with Boustred on the summer dresses of our dreams, which are available exclusively on Well Made Clothes. We think they're pretty dreamy and we hope you do too!
