Collage Dress Cross Stitch Small
Our Collage Dresses are made from a combination of new and vintage fabrics, produced as one of a kinds or in very limited numbers.
This classic, striking black linen cotton really sets off the vintage embroidery, highlighting the beautiful workwomanship in these old handcrafted pieces.
Relaxed but shapely fit, falls straight down from bustline, drapes over the tummy without looking too full or billowy. Back centre seam curves slightly to draw in the back waist. Cap sleeve and medium depth neckline are both comfortable and flattering. There’s pockets hidden in side seams too of course! The skirt is half way between a straight fit and an a-line and falls just above the knee. This dress looks great worn as is or layers easily in cool weather.

Handmade in Sydney Australia.
