Make a dress from this that you’ll wear all the time!
I sourced this AMAZING stretch jersey fabric recently from a local sewist who said she got it in the late 70s/early 80s. It’s perfect for making a fabulous wrap dress a la Diane Von Furstenburg circa 1970s (and later). See pics with it wrapped on my draping mannequin to get an idea of just how unique its abstract overlapping circles would look on the garment of your choosing. Could also make an interesting drapery if lightly lined to add structure.
COLORS: Almost a dark brown/black rather than a hard black proper. The other color is a cream/off-white.
FIBER: The sewist said it was 100% cotton — if not, it likely only has a small amount of poly fiber. Very soft hand, superior drape, breathable.
Size: 64″ w x 4.5 yards.
SHIPPING: Free domestic; calculated international shipping.
SHOP NOTE: I’m all about sustainability. ALL of my packaging (boxes, envelopes, tissue, ribbons, padding) except tape is 100% recycled. I only include invoices by request to avoid more paper and ink use. Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.
SHOP MISSION: My philosophy is #buyantiquesfirst #buyvintagefirst #buyusedfirst #buyupcycledfirst. It is our duty to not make new demands on the industrial economy and instead to utilize already embedded energy is the quadrillions of products already made and still useable in life today.
With my products, together you and I help reduce earth impacts since I source vintage items and resources either as they are, or to upcycle into new products, giving them a new life. This reduces demand on current resources, preserves history, and keeps valuable items out of the landfill, all of which asks just a little bit less out of our ever-giving Mother Earth. And since Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, this approach is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.
