Cartwheel dresses are made from secondhand tablecloths. Most start out circular, a hole is cut in the middle and a bodice plus straps are cut from the hole piece. This tablecloth had too beautiful of embroidery to cut so a green linen was incorporated for the bodice. These dresses get a gathered circle skirt making them super extra twirly. Due to the nature of using the tablecloth the way it is and not having side seams, these dresses do not have pockets. Sorry! But if you ask us, there's too much skirt going on to find the pockets anyway. Please check truly everything else we make for pocket options.
All bodices are lined with a vintage sheet or yardage and have adjustable wide shoulder ties. Tablecloths that are stained are dyed or patched and all washed before being sewn. This one was dyed a light teal with RIT dyes. The bodice is a simple shape, no darts or closures so make sure your chest measurement can go over your lifted shoulders. We recommend choosing a dress 2 inches larger than your chest measurement.
