Our X-form is a simple yet stylish, modern version of 60’s inspired mod trapeze wrap dress. It is super versatile: wear it over swim suits at the beach or after the sprinkle at the playground, pair it with our Bubble Shorts on a hot Summer day, and layer it with short or long sleeve t-shirts and leggings or pants for cooler days. It wraps in the back, forming an X and closing with snaps at the shoulder. The wrap-in-the back silhouette is very comfortable, allowing for maximum playability.
Each dress comes with a little storybook about the illustration on the dress. This little storybook fits in the PaperGirl Secret Pocket on the side of the dress so that girls can carry there for on-the-go reading. The inside of the pocket is also illustrated.
All around this wrap-dress you can see “The sailor who loved to draw.” Inspired by vintage sailor tattoos, all the ink drawings were handmade by the artists at the PaperGirl art studio especially for this dress. The illustration is digitally printed on 100% cotton and with proper care it will last a long time.
The lining is super soft and fresh 100% cotton, nothing itchy or sticky against your girls soft skin. We use high-quality shirting fabric made of the softest Egyptian cotton and woven in Japan. Our illustrated fabrics are printed in an environmentally responsible facility in North Carolina.
Accessories that match this dress will be available soon!
The story book:
This dress includes a little book titled “The sailor who loved to draw”. This book tells us the story of Anton, a sailor who uses his spare time aboard a 3-mast sailboat to draw what he sees on his travels, who he met and what he liked and loved on the High Seas. Sad after his paper notebooks got wet during a storm, a sailor friend suggests he use a different surface to keep his drawings safely with him, rain or shine.
