The Natural Supply Co 'Gee' Dress was inspired by Celeste's beautiful grandmother, affectionately nicknamed Gee, who emigrated to Melbourne from Poland after surviving Auschwitz in WWII.
Armed with a sewing machine on the boat trip over, Gee and her husband ran a successful coat making factory in Melbourne in the 1950s and '60s. Our dresses are a tribute to her.
Melbourne artist Sarah Rowe created the beautiful artwork design just for us. The fabric was then printed in Melbourne, before being transformed into our gorgeous frocks by an Ethical Clothing Australia-accredited maker.
The dress has been designed to slip on over your head: no fiddly buttons or zips to see here! It's knee length, and we think it looks incredible with bare legs in warmer weather, or layered up with a skivvy and tights in cooler weather - so versatile!
We created this dress for us, really - and for you. People who love fashion but want it to be fun and easy, no dry cleaning or ironing required. People who care about the environment, and the people who make garments; that want industry to be kept alive in Australia, and workers to earn a fair wage for their work.
So much love, attention and time has gone into our first ever Natural Supply Co dresses, and we hope you will love yours as much as we love ours.
Each dress is unique, so please note that the pattern placement will vary.
Size guide: In the images, Sarah wears the XS and Celeste wears the XL.
Please note, the bust is the most important measurement to take into account. The dress has been designed to be fitted around the bust and then loose in the waist and hip.
The measurements listed below are for your body measurements, not the dress.

I love this dress and I get compliments every time I wear it. The bright colours make me happy, and it's so comfortable. I also love that it's so easy to wash and it doesn't need ironing. Great job girls!
One dress so many ways!
I love how versatile this dress is. I’ve worn it with cute little sandals in summer and then thrown on a denim jacket for evening. As the cooler months come in I’ve been wearing it with a skivvy and tights and boots. The bright colours make me happy and I get so many compliments when I wear it. But maybe the best thing is it really is ‘wash and wear’. I literally wash it and hang out to dry. No ironing required! The perfect dress to travel in too.
Love the Gee dress!
The Gee dress has an amazing print with gorgeous colours. The fabric is excellent quality and is super comfy to wear. It’s a dress that I will wear year round. It can be easily layered with a polo top and tights or leggings for the cooler weather. In warmer weather sandals or wedges would be a great match. And of course it looks fab with sneakers. This is very flattering and versatile dress. It’s beautiful wearable art that can be styled with so many different colours and accessories. I highly recommend this gorgeous dress!
So happy with this dress! Every time I wear it I get compliments on it, and it is comfortable, easy to wear and look after. Love I can chuck it in the wash with my other cotton pieces. I know I will be reaching for this dress for years to come.
Comfy, fun, colourful and pockets - what more could a gal ask for? Just love this dress, it always lifts my mood. Washes beautifully too, and the cotton feels so lush.
