We are excited to announce Rightfully Sewn is launching its own line, starting with one little black dress - the sales of which will benefit our programs.
It features classic princess seams, French darts, and dramatic sleeves. It is constructed of comfortable, moisture-wicking, and machine-washable athletic wear material so it’s perfect to wear to work, out on the town, and throw it in your suitcase.
The garment’s simple, elegant design was a collaborative effort by Rightfully Sewn team members: Jennifer Lapka, Godfrey Riddle, Pamela Lucas, Sarah Watts, and intern Helena Doni. They are being cut and sewn in our state-of-the-art atelier in the heart of the Crossroads Arts District in Kansas City, Missouri.
