Griff is offering fans the opportunity to own her "But Daddy I Love Him"-inspired dress she wore when she opened for Taylor Swift at the Eras Tour on June 22.

On June 26, the 23-year-old singer shared on Instagram that she would be “giving away my unbuttoned dress from the Eras Tour” to a lucky fan who preorders her upcoming debut album Vertigo.

Griff wrote in her post that the dress is “very sentimental to me” and that she “wanted to pass it down to one of you guys.” 

In an interview with British Vogue published on June 24, the “Vertigo” singer revealed that she made the “mesh-y, translucent-y, deconstructed” blue and white dress herself — something she has done for her other performances over the years — and said, “I always do this. I think, ‘Yeah… I can rustle up a dress!’”

“I really fell in love with The Tortured Poets Department, and more specifically ‘But Daddy I Love Him,’” she explained. “I’ve always been drawn to a big dress shape and deconstructed fashion… I wanted the dress to almost look open, to flow.”

“To me, the bone in my body that likes making songs is the same one that enjoys making clothes,” she continued. “Be it a song or a dress… something might not exist right now, but then in two hours, it could.”
