Patchwork Dress, Made to Order ~ Sunshine Garden Palette
The Made-to order patchwork dress in the Sunshine Garden Palette. A selection of hand curated vintage florals in baby pink, blue, yellow and cream tones. Mostly 100% cotton, with perhaps some cotton blends.
About the design: This dress style features puffy sleeves gathered by a comfortable elastic sitting just above the elbow, darts for shaping around the chest, a slanted waist line curving up in the centre, and a mid/low V neckline falling into a front closure of three handmade ceramic buttons that could be useful for anyone breastfeeding. The hem falls comfortably above the knee but not too short!
How to order: Now that you’ve selected your palette, please take note of the following options and include this information in the checkout notes! (None of these options affect the price of your garment.)
Buttons: All buttons are ceramic, and locally hand made; please choose one colour from the following options; light grey, cream, light blue, and rust.
Skirt length: The original design features a shorter skirt (falling at the mid/low thigh to just above the knee, depending on your height), however, if desired, I can make the skirt longer or shorter. If you choose this option, please let me know your height, and measure from your shoulder to where you would like the hem to fall, indicate this measurement in inches or centimetres.
Pockets: Please let me know if you’d like in-seam pockets in your dress! These would be hidden pockets located in the side seams right below the waist line of the skirt.
Sizing: Please consult my size chart and let me know which size you fall into. If you are unsure or are outside of the size chart, you may instead choose to provide me with your measurements. The measurements I will need are:
Chest: measure around the fullest part of the chest
Shoulder to waist: measure from the highest point of your shoulder down to your natural waist—usually an inch or so above the belly button.
Arm measurement: even if you select one of my standard sizes, if possible, please measure around your upper arm, just above the elbow. This will help me make sure the puff sleeve fits you perfectly!
That’s it! Thank you so much <3 Please allow for up to two weeks for your order to be made and shipped.
