A dress with everything you want: sleeves, an open back, and lovely modified A-line skirt.
This dress features delicate illusion lace over a romantic sweetheart bodice. Choose strapless or with elbowlength sleeves for your season or location. This dress is right at home in a breezy garden or historic mansion. A dramatic open back is topped with delicate lace and buttons. The bodice gently transitions from lace with a fringed scallop edge to a skirt that hugs the upper hip and gently flares out. The train features a godet for added volume and appeal.
This dress is fully lined and the bodice is constructed with boning, cups, and interfacing for excellent support. Invisible zipper at back.
Handmade. Fair Trade. Ethical. This dress is handmade at a Fair Trade women's sewing group in Cambodia by a talented group of seamstresses. These women earn a fair wage so they can better themselves and their families. Celia Grace makes a one-for-one donation of a school uniform to a needy child in Cambodia for each dress sold.
This dress is named in honor of an inspiring woman, Zora Neale Hurston, the African-American novelist, short story writer, folklorist and anthropologist.

Refunds & Exchanges: We are unable to accept refunds & exchanges on new dresses.
What is a Home Try-On? It's when we mail you sample dress(es) to try on in the comfort of your home. Your timeline. No pressure. Try on dress(es) over a weekend and then mail them back with the return label we provide.
What does it cost? The try on is free but US shipping costs $29 for the first style and $20 for each additional style--then we take this amount off your dress purchase.
Where do I choose my size & try on dates? Choose your dress size and 1-3 weekends that would work best for you at checkout. We don't have every size in stock for try ons so we'll help choose the best size and we'll send clothing clips to fit the dress (just like at a bridal shop!).
