Meaning dawn in Finnish, Sarastus paints the picture of a starry night breaking away into a beautiful new day. Fittingly named Auer (Haze), Katsuji Wakisaka's design uses color density to create an ombre effect, allowing the dress to gradually fade from a powder blue to a rich sapphire. A round neckline and short sleeves lead the way down to an above-knee hemline in an airy, A-line silhouette. Loose-fitting and lightweight, this garment is comfortable, movable and breathable; perfect for a day at the farmer's market or a music festival.
Care: Machine washable. Follow instructions on tag.

The dress arrived in a very few days after the purchase. It is very light weight, beautiful blue colors. A perfect dress for Finnish blue eyes. It will be my favorite summer dress to go to Farmers Markets, shopping, hosting garden parties. Very airy and loose for hot humid summer days! I love it.
