This one-of-a-kind dress is repurposed from a medium weight, crisp, vanilla colour tone, vintage or antique French linen bed sheet purchased in the markets of Provence.
Original hand embroidery from the sheet is featured at the top of the dress.
The dress has convenient in-seam side pockets.
The fabric has been pre-washed and will not shrink if washed in cold water and hung to dry. When ironing 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 I source fabric, my focus is on its tactile nature and its reflection of a history of use and/or workmanship.
