Denim smock dress
Colour-block handmade smock dress with v neckline and straps.
Our organic cotton denim smock dress is perfect for the hot weather. The swing/smock style is super airy and the denim is light and breathable. The dress has a v neckline on the front and back, with the back being slightly deeper. It has lovely little strap shoulders for a relaxed and flattering look. Two of the three back panels are reversed, adding an abstract and unique element with a contrast in colour. In this dress, I also mindfully incorporate remnant denim from our other projects, avoiding wastage.
I designed and make each dress in my workshop in Nottingham, England.
98% organic cotton and 2% lycra.
We make our denim smock dress from organic cotton. Organic cotton is more sustainable that regular cotton because the process is based on long-term thinking. Organic cotton farming does not use synthetic insecticides, fungicides, herbicides or fertilisers. Farmers maintain healthy soil through crop rotation, preventing the loss of nutrients into water bodies and so avoiding water pollution and the need for artificial fertilisers. Organic cotton farming also uses significantly less water than ordinary cotton, whereby farmers rely mainly on rainwater. Find out more about organic farming at the Textile Exchange!
The labels we use are made from recycled fabric that is OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified. We also package the product in recycled paper and ship using reusable and compostable mailbags.
A great resource on sustainable fashion is the Fashion Revolution, including information on what to consider when choosing where and what to buy.
As a brand that value sustainability, we also strive to post informative content on sustainable matters on our Instagram account @fordandguy
I offer multiple sizes.

Machine wash our organic dress at 30 degrees C. Drip dry and iron on medium heat. Do not bleach. To waste less water, energy and to make your clothes last longer, wash on cold, wash less often and don’t tumble dry.
