This one-of-a-kind dress is repurposed from a light to medium weight, crisp, vintage or antique French linen bed sheet purchased in the markets of Provence. Exquisite original hand embroidery featured on the front and back bodice.
The dress has convenient in-seam pockets.
The fabric has been pre-washed and will not shrink if washed in cold water and hung to dry. When you iron this dress do it with the embroidery face down on a terry cloth towel. This will maintain the depth/fullness of the embroidery.
Please review the measurements provided to ensure that this would be 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.
