Cartwheel dresses are made from secondhand tablecloths! This one was a tablecloth gifted from the poodle-in-charge's mother. Most start out circular, a hole in cut in the middle and a bodice is cut from the hole piece. 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 straps. Tablecloths that are stained are dyed or patched and certainly they are all washed before being sewn. The bodice is a simple shape, no darts or closures so make sure your chest measurement can go over your lifted shoulders.
