Our X-form is a simple yet stylish, modern version of mod-trapeze wrap dress. It is super versatile: wear it over swim suits at the beach or sprinkle playground or pair it with our BubbleShorts in a hot Summer day or 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 closes with snaps on the shoulders. The wrap-in-the back silhouette is very comfortable allowing maximum playability. Each dress comes with a little storybook about the illustration on the dress. The little storybook fits in the PaperGirl Secret Pocket on the side of the dress so that girls can carry their books in there for on-the-go reading. The inside of the pocket is also illustrated.
All around this wrap-dress you can see “The Swimmers”, a Matisse-inspired paper cut-out collage made by the artists at the PaperGirl art studio. It 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!
