On the occasion, I am given fabric from women who have collected lengths of various fabrics over a period of many years. One day a lady came into my studio with an arm full of vintage fabric her mother had been storing since the 1930's. She was more than happy to give this stash a new home, and I was more than willing to be the new owner.
This dress is made from a piece she gave me, it is a beautiful cotton fabric with a slight twill. You don't see fabric like this these days, which is a shame, as it is just beautiful. The print is gorgeous too, so I could not resist making this up into a vintage style dress dating from the 40's
