The Melodious dress is a full skirt dress, available in Gingham, Scarlet and Pumice White. Scarlet is a deep red shade the gingham is the same fabric print as is on the Tabouleh Dress.


The Melodious Dress is 100% silk. Dry cleaning recommended.


This dress has adjustable straps, which are very thin – and would be ideal if you were looking for something to slip on, which looks effortlessly beautiful. The Melodious dress has no zips, claps or other closures. To put it on, we recommend you slip it over your head and let the skirt fall down. If you are a wheelchair user, you may need some assistance, to get the full body of the skirt sitting down in the right place. As you can see in the pictures, there are tiered gathers in the skirt. These begin from about low waist and are designed to flow outwards to bring the skirt romantically to the floor.

The skirt of the dress may be tricky to wear if you use a wheelchair because of this. The multiple tiered layers sit outside of the frame of a wheelchair. You could tuck them in and get it sitting in a good position. However, it could drag across the ground, due to the dress being floor length. In this case, we recommend tucking the hem of the dress under so that it can sit in a good position and not drag.

Otherwise, this dress is otherwise absolutely dreamy.

It has no sleeves, and you can get the fabric to sit flat underneath you, this makes it achievable to push yourself. The neckline is flattering, the fit of the bodice until the start of the tiered skirt is loose, but still flattering, and the flow of the dress flatters any body.
