Collection: The Zayzelle Dress

Zayzelle loves this dress. It flows and drapes, giving you freedom of movement, unparalleled style and comfort. For women on the move, deep patch pockets give a place to tuck a cell phone, small change, a notebook or lip color. This is slow fashion at its best. Well-made to last. Shaped for each of us, regardless of shape!

We use 100% cotton and linen. Sometimes our fabric is dyed with natural materials like indigo or wild marigold or pecan shells. We always use French seams that will not fray or ravel, giving the inside of the garment a beautiful finished edge.

The Zayzelle Dress is designed as "one size fits most" (M-XL) with drop shoulders and inset sleeves. 

Simply Zayzelle.

Measurements may vary slightly:

  •   24" across the chest, armpit to armpit
  •   45" long from shoulder to hem
  •   27" long sleeve from neck opening to hem

One-of-a-Kind Zayzelle. This is small scale, customized couture. We sew this dress in a Oaxaca, Mexico village, giving local women much more than the going wage, helping them provide for their families. Each dress is custom-made. We use the same pattern but change the fabric based on availability and designer preferences.

Care: Hand wash with a mild neutral soap, rinse and hang to dry, or machine wash on gentle and hang to dry for excellent results. If you wish to iron, please use medium heat. 

Meet the Maker: Norma Schafer, Oaxaca Cultural Navigator, created this pattern several years ago and began sewing it in different weights that could transition from summer to winter. She selected cotton and linen for her personal use. Out and about and in her travels through the USA, Mexico and beyond, people would stop her and ask, Where did you get that dress? I made it, she answered. I want one, too, they might say.
