Who said Madras is not sexy??? Introducing The Creole Dress.  It's the perfect item to wear on #vacation.

A little history about the material, "known as the madras, is named after its place of origin, Madras, India. The origins of the Madras lie in the pre-emancipation days of St. Lucia, when African slaves on the island would don the colourful dress during feast days. Normally a single colour, one piece item, originally worn as a sarong, later becoming a simple tunic with holes for the arms and head, and a simple rope belt. On feast days and special occasions, free women and slaves would wear the colourful clothes, now known as Creole dress." 

Short front with hem hitting knee length & the back of dress is long & floating.  Sash ties at waist. Zipper closure in the back& of course has pockets.  Easy breezy dress to take on your travels.  Custom orders available if your size is not listed.
