I love love LOVE this dress, and if I had a choice i’d keep it for myself, but I need to let this dress go to a new home.
This pattern is one that I hand drafted myself. It is a design that I came up with on my own, and one that I am most proud of. The fabric it old than most people I know. It was printed in 1979 and is no longer available for purchase… ANYWHERE.
Without knowing this fun fact, I turned what could have been an really expensive fabric, into a moderately expensive, handmade, eco friendly summer dress. This fabric was donated to me by an interior designer in the local San Francisco Bay Area. This fabric would have ended up in a landfill, but instead it has been turning into a very cute and flirty summer dress. It features a plunging neckline, low/no back, circle skirt, pockets, and the knowledge that it is eco friendly.
This dress should be should for $220, just because of the time spent sewing and the exclusivity of the fabric alone. Alas, I am needing to clean out my closet of old items, in order to make way for new ones. This means that this dress IS ON SALE!!
I am selling int for $160, down from $220 and a steal of a deal.
I can promise you that you will FOREVER be the only person in the work who has this dress.
