This dress made from secondhand purple cotton/linen yardage was inspired by clothes a grandma would make for you. Sprinkled with antique quilt squares HAND-SEWN by someone, somewhere, this dress has a wide, boxy, child-like feel for twirling and plopping down in the grass. Three dresses were made from this secondhand yardage, each the same silhouette but in different sizes and with different quilt square color stories. This one features yellow, green, and blue in soft tones. One of the quilt squares is a functional large pocket on the front skirt in addition to two in-seam pockets making a grand total of three! Other features include an open neck with bias binding tie, heavily gathered skirt, and gathered sleeve for a loose arm fit leading down to a smaller cuff at about 3/4 sleeve length.
Recommended washing instructions: gentle or hand wash cycle, cold water, tumble dry low or better yet, air dry! The fabric is sturdy but the quilt squares are old and hand-sewn. The more delicate the washing, the better.
Sizing: This dress is considered MINI on the poodle scale (toy, mini, standard). Fits size Medium the best.
