The Kate maxi dress features a wrap style closure, gathered fabric at shoulder seams and an asymmetrical hemline. Long sleeves. We love that Natalie Martin utilizes ancient hand printed batik practices to create her fabrics in Bali.

This is my favorite style of Natalie Martin dress for versatility. It can go to the pool, beach, to lunch or dinner, all that is needed is a change of shoes and jewelry. The top runs quite large in the bust. I usually wear a size 8 to 10 but I am broad shouldered so tops are often a large. I purchased a large and was swimming in the top there was so much extra material. I then ordered a medium which still needs a hook closure to keep from being exposed. Once that was fixed I loved the dress and the fit. Very slimming to the figure giving a long line look. The ties lie high for the waist but not really a true empire cut.
