This dress was upcycled from apiece of imported Swiss cotton I so lovingly hand tea-dyed from white to a soft and dark ivory. The GRETEL Dress has a Sabrina neckline, cinched in waist with a matching eyelet belt. Lined in muslin, it has a low back lined with a row of covered buttons. Cutout patterns of embroidery adorn the border of the skirt and neckline. If you like the precision of the bouffant/hourglass shaping here it is structured by a separate layered crinoline petticoat.
Swiss cotton lace blouse with 3/4-length sleeves and chiffon skirt bordered in lace. Special order through Amy-Jo Tatum
