Lemlem, whose beautiful fabrics are made in Ethiopia as a way to continue the beautiful, traditional art of weaving and provide economic stability for workers, makes what has to be the perfect summer dress. The lightweight cotton has pretty stripes and a boxy shape. The tie (which can be worn either in the front or back) brings the waist in for a bit more definition. I’d love to wear this to the beach, or a backyard dinner party. See links and the other color options after the jump.
The Teddy Poncho Dress is $200 at Lemlem.
