Mélisse by Brittani Bumb // “We were talking about all the things we missed, from the salt-kissed air breezing against our skin to the warm sand to the pure bliss felt while lounging in the sun, reading a good book. All these images and feelings came together to inspire the MÉLISSE design, an outfit that effortlessly catches the summer air in its flowing hem.” MÉLISSE is a three-in-one pattern with many beautiful variations. Make yours as an airy and festive dress, a simple
maxi or midi skirt, or a cute summer top. The possibilities are endless! Sewn in Verb's silk printed with marigold petals.
