Black Floral Cowl Dress

Charlotte Hall, ...






I made this dress using all recycled materials. The bodice and buttons were made using a ’90s floral material from a recycled shirt, and the black knits are recycled pieces as well.


Garment Type
Casual, Vintage

    I also love this dress, the cowl collar is a fave of mine, very beautiful. I presume this is your own design>?
