Dancing Girls Ribbon Dress


Designer’s Notes

It’s no coincidence that all the women in Arty Guava’s drawings are of various shades of brown. As a child who tanned easily, she learnt quickly that fair skin was often prized. She now uses her art as a not-so-subtle way of celebrating women of colour. Everything about this dress makes us want to celebrate!


The Dancing Girls Ribbon Dress is a stretchy fit and flare dress with a gathered bust panel (perfect for ditching the bra) and ribbon tie straps which allow adjustable fit. Made from 97% Organic Cotton and 3% Spandex for comfort and shape retention. 

Responsible Production 

Organic Cotton is made without the use of harmful pesticides or synthetic fertilisers. This fabric was weaved and printed in a factory equipped with in-house water treatment (recycling) and waste management facilities for a closed loop production cycle. Only water-based inks that comply with the Oeko-Tex® 100 Standard were used.

We want you to be confident that the size you select is the size that will fit. The key is knowing your body measurements and then comparing the key product measurements against your own to help you decide which size to buy. 

 Measuring Yourself

Be sure to take your measurements with minimal clothing on and be mindful that your bust measurements will be influenced by the bra you wear.

  • Bust: Taken over the largest part of the bust, keep the tape leveled at the back
  • Waist: Stand upright, measure the narrowest part of your waist - above your belly button and below your ribcage
  • Hip: Standing with feet together, measure the fullest part of your hips, approximately 9 inches below your waist

 Product Measurements

On each product page, we will provide key measurements of the piece to help you decide which size to select.
