Petite Everyday Dress, Silk Noil in NaturalMiranda Bennett Studio
Please Note, this item is a Petite Version of our Everyday Dress. Height, not build. Petites come in all shapes, builds & sizes. This is our new proportion of collection staples re-patterned for bodies 5'4 & under. We'll continue to add more to the initial offering on a regular basis with Rare Breed, small batch plant dyed colors and our Black & White Essentials.
About the item:
“Clothes made from geometric shapes - squares, triangles, rectangles, and circles - have eminent advantages over conventional dress: …They would end our artificial categories (white tie, black tie, afternoon, etc.). They can fulfill any number of functions. We shall again become aware of the inherent beauty of uncut materials” - Bernard Rudofsky
Consider the Everyday style the North Star of our collection, the style that started it all, that guides the direction, mood and energy of our entire line. Humble geometry done just so, it conforms to innumerable body types, flatters and comforts while lending confidence to the women inside. It's on our desert island wishlist, and, after all of these years, is still our best seller. Each edition we revisit the cut, proportion, fabrications and natural dye formulas for this style, so check back with us to see what's new.
The Everyday Dress comes in a selection of premium fabrics that vary in both texture and fit. Shown in silk noil, a linchpin of our collection, with a textural, suede-to-flannel hand and light body, it can easily be dressed up or down and worn season-to-season. See more fabric options here.

About the Every Body Collection: The Every Body Collection is an extension of our ongoing journey towards size inclusion. Although many of our designs are one-size-fits-most, we recognize and celebrate the incredible diversity of our MBS clientele. This collection will be added to continuously, so stay tuned for more releases as the year progresses!
At the heart of this collection are our existing pieces in the silhouettes that provide the most flexibility in their fit. We will also be adding variations of existing styles, new cuts & altered fits to better accommodate a multitude of sizes. These altered styles will be available online as new listings with names that reflect the nature of the changes we have made for a more straight forward and inclusive online experience.
We love hearing your suggestions about pieces that already exist as well the pieces you would love to see, and encourage your continued participation in how we form our collection! We wouldn't exist without you, and it is within this spirit that we are seeking to offer the most complete reflection possible of the individuals who inspire our design ethos and brand.
