Garment descriptions

If you're a tad confused about what each of our KarlaCola garments feature and what they don't, you've come to the right page. Listed below you will find a detailed description of each garment we sell, to make your educated choice much easier.

 

SLEEVELESS SUNDRESS

Our sleeveless sundress, being our most popular garment, it is a versatile dress which can be worn all year round. It is perfect for summer worn as is, or layering over long sleeve tees, leggings or our colourful opaque tights in the cooler months.

Dress features the below:

  • FABRIC: 100% organic cotton poplin - this fabric is a tightly woven textile, is fairly opaque given its light weight, and is very taught all over. It is a light crisp fabric and has no stretch. This dress is un-lined but is not see through or sheer. 
  • LENGTH: measures approximately 88 - 100cms from shoulder to hem (pending size of dress), and typically sits above the knee.
  • NECKLINE: rounded and high at the back, rounded and covering cleavage at front.
  • FIT: has a fitted bodice with a generous gathered skirt that sits under the bust. If in-between sizes we recommend going up a size or trying the cap sleeve style in the same size (with the cut for the arms there tends to be more room across the back and bust area in cap sleeve) 
  • POCKETS: no

 

CAP SLEEVE SUNDRESS 

The cap sleeve sundress, again, is a versatile dress which can be worn all year round. This dress is great if you love the style of the sundress but would like a bit more coverage, or to cover the upper arms.

Dress features the below:

    • FABRIC: 100% cotton poplin - this fabric is a tightly woven textile, is fairly opaque given its light weight, and is very taught all over. It is a light crisp fabric and has no stretch. This dress is un-lined but is not see through or sheer.
    • LENGTH: measures approximately 88 - 100cms from shoulder to hem (pending size of dress), and typically sits above the knee.
    • NECKLINE: rounded and high at the back, rounded and covering cleavage at front. Has cap sleeves which cover the shoulder and top arm.
    • FIT: has a fitted bodice with a generous gathered skirt that sits under the bust. Unlike the sleeveless sundress, if in between sizes we do NOT recommend sizing up. This is because the cap sleeve sundress measures slightly bigger than the sleeveless style.
    • POCKETS: no 

REVERSIBLE SUNDRESS 

Our reversible sundress, can be worn either way - with the lower neckline at the front, or at the back. Suited to customers who want the option to show more 'skin' or cleavage, and the option to change it up if desired. And, because of the dual power neckline and more ease of movement, this dress is well suited for those with broad shoulders.

Dress features the below:

  • FABRIC: 100% cotton sateen - this fabric is a tightly woven textile, is fairly opaque given its light weight, and is very taught all over. It is a light crisp fabric and has no stretch. This dress is un-lined and features a slight sheen when we use the cotton sateen. Always be sure to read the listings carefully as we do also occasionally offer this style in the poplin also. 
  • LENGTH: measures approximately 88 - 100cms from shoulder to hem (pending size of dress), and typically sits above the knee.
  • NECKLINE: one side features a rounded V neck style, which sits low to allow customers to show more cleavage or when worn at the back show's more skin and is quite flattering. Other side features a higher rounded scoop style neck. 
  • FIT: has a fitted bodice with a generous gathered skirt that sits under the bust. If in-between sizes we recommend going up a size. 
  • POCKETS: no

LONGER LENGTH SUNDRESS

Our longer length sundress, is any of our sundress styles but with a much longer length. This is for anyone looking for a dress that covers their knee's.

Dress features the below:

  • FABRIC: depends on the style dress ordered. Please check the listing for each dress for more information. - can vary between our organic cotton poplin or the cotton sateen. 
  • LENGTH: measures approximately 105cm's from shoulder to hem (pending size of dress), and typically sits below the knee.

  • FIT: has a fitted bodice with a generous gathered skirt that sits under the bust. 
  • POCKETS: no

 

TIE UP SUNDRESS

Our reversible tie up sundress, is a fabulous maternity and breastfeeding dress. Its also great for customers who want the freedom to change how tight or loose they want the top of their sundress to sit and its super cute! Everyone loves this dress. Again, it is a versatile dress which can be worn all year round. 

Dress features the below:

  • POCKETS: no

 

TEE DRESS

Our Tee dresses are incredibly comfortable being made of super soft stretch jersey. This dress is a great everyday dress with flats or sneakers, or dressed up with wedges or heels. The waist elastic can be pushed up or down ending where you'd like to wear it. Looks great with our sash ties, tied around your waist in thge matching fabric and even belted. 

Dress features the below:

RELAXED DRESS

 

Our Relaxed dresses have a lower waist drop than our sundress, roomier than our usual fit, side pockets and a neckline that can be worn either way.

SWING DRESS

Our Swing dresses are an extremely comfortable stretch semi-flowy dress that has an A-line shape. This dress hugs your chest and then the fabric bell's out from there. This makes this dress extremely comfortable with lots of ease of movement. 

Dress features the below:

  • FABRIC: 100% cotton stretch jersey - this fabric is a single-knit cotton fabric which is known for its stretch and softness. Jersey fabric does not wrinkle easily because its natural stretch lets it keep its shape. This is an un-lined dress. Slightly heavier weight jersey which suits all seasons, the thickness makes the quality exceptional and stops the jersey from clinging to the body. 
  • LENGTH: measures approximately 88 - 95cms from shoulder to hem (pending size of dress), and typically sits above the knee.
  • NECKLINE: scoop neck both front and back, covering cleavage at front, and high neck at back.

SHORT SLEEVE SWING DRESS

 

 

Our short sleeve Swing dresses are the same cut as our regular swing dresses, but their difference between the two, is that they have sleeves that sit just above the elbow. They are an extremely comfortable stretch semi-flowy dress that has an A-line shape. This dress should be semi fitted in your chest and then the fabric bell's out from there, because of the softness of the fabric it hangs nicely and doesn't flare out on. This makes this dress extremely comfortable with lots of ease of movement, and a great swing dress for the warmer months due to the shorter arm length.

Dress features the below:

  • FABRIC: 100% cotton stretch jersey - this fabric is a single-knit cotton fabric which is known for its stretch and softness. Jersey fabric does not wrinkle easily because its natural stretch lets it keep its shape. This is an un-lined dress. Slightly heavier weight jersey which suits all seasons but is exceptional quality that doesn't cling to the body like thin jersey can.
  • LENGTH: measures approximately 88 - 95cms from shoulder to hem (pending size of dress), and typically sits above the knee.
  • NECKLINE: scoop neck both front and back, covering cleavage at front, and high neck at back.
  • FIT: extremely comfortable dress that falls away from the body with ease of movement due to its stretch. Features sleeves that stop before the elbow.
  • POCKETS: no

SHIFT DRESS

 

Our Shift dresses are an A-line style dress that hangs straight down from the shoulders with clean, simple lines. An extremely good dress to layer in the cooler months with long sleeves and tights underneath.

Dress features the below:

  • FABRIC: 100% cotton linen blend - this fabric is a textured breathable fabric that has some structure to it. Linen is very durable and strong making it a great combination with 100% cotton. This is an un-lined dress with no stretch.
  • LENGTH: measures approximately 88 - 95cms from shoulder to hem (pending size of dress), and typically sits above the knee.
  • NECKLINE: scoop neck both front and back, covering cleavage at front, and high neck at back. This dress cannot have sleeves added, it is only a sleeveless dress.

PLAYSUIT

 

 

Our Playsuits are a very comfortable playsuit well suited for hot summer days due to the lightweight fabric we use. Features front and back darts to hide the extra room in the hips and elastic at the waist for a flattering fit. Playsuit can be worn high on the waist or pushed lower down, depending on where you would like it to sit and is conservative enough to wear to work. 

Dress features the below:

  • FABRIC: 100% cotton seersucker - Seersucker is a thin, textured, all-cotton fabric, used to make clothing for spring and summer. Seersucker is woven in such a way that some threads bunch together, giving the fabric a crinkled appearance in places but does not wrinkle, and thus giving it a striped pattern within the fabric. This feature is fabulous as it causes the fabric to be mostly held away from the skin when worn, facilitating heat dissipation and air circulation. It also means that ironing is not needed! Seersucker is also very delicate in nature, which means care should be given. This is an un-lined playsuit.
  • LENGTH: measures approximately 81-92.5cms from shoulder to hem (pending size of playsuit). The shorts are a mid length but the hem features a larger hem that could potentially be dropped down by a tailor for more length.
  • NECKLINE: V neck at front which covers cleavage. High neck at back, with a low back opening (as shown in photo) with button closure.
  • FIT: roomy playsuit for ease of movement and comfort in the heat. Playsuit also works well with a love sleeved top layered underneath, and tights, for the cooler months. Playsuit is sleeveless.
  • POCKETS: yes

 

 

RELAXED SHIFT WITH REMOVABLE SASH TIE
