Beautiful cotton dress

Beautiful cotton dress
Love this


This beautiful delicate yellow dress is definitely unique. It is made from recycled vintage cotton lawn fabric. The dress was originally a bridesmaid’s dress which was made by my mum, for my sister, 45 years ago. Mum preserved it with care. The fabric is as new as the day it was bought and is one for the best fabrics I have ever used to make any dress.
The fabric is pale yellow with delicate pale yellow, white and green petals. The dress is fully lined with new light beige cotton fabric which enhances the delicate yellow fabric. The skirt is gathered skirt on to a bodice with has flutter sleeves. There is a sash across the front and a belt which ties into a bow at the back. The dress fastens at the back with 4 small buttons.

To fit a 9-12 month child
Chest approx 20 inches. Length from shoulder to hem 15 inches.
Care instructions. I have laundered this fabric using the following instructions:-
Cool wash . Cool iron. Do not tumble dry.

Free postage is available for this dress


My mum always made our clothes. She was also a great hoarded and never threw anything away which could be re-used. I found the bridesmaid’s dress when clearing her home and I too couldn’t throw it away as the fabric was so beautiful and in pristine condition. Mum is very pleased that I have been able to recycle the original dress.
