This one-of-a-kind dress is repurposed from a medium to heavier weight, crisp vintage or antique French linen bed sheet purchased in the markets of Provence. The back of the dress features beautiful original hand embroidery from a top corner of the bed sheet
The dress hem is the original hand stitched bottom of the bed sheet.
The dress has convenient in-seam side pockets.
There is a small faded dark mark on the back bodice of the dress. It is the approximate size of the end of a Q Tip.
The fabric has been pre-washed and will not shrink if washed in cold water and hung to dry.
Please review the measurements provided to ensure that this is the right size for you. The measurements provided are of the actual finished garment. Remember to add 2.5 cm/1 inch or so to your bust and waist measurements to permit the garment to hang properly. There is no zipper on this dress.
Fabrics that are not new linen are listed as vintage or antique as it is difficult to accurately date fabrics and, when sourcing fabric, my focus is on its tactile nature and its reflection of a history of use and/or workmanship.
