Description

Another girls peasant dress with cap sleeves made from a vintage hand embroidered table cloth.

This time it was a made-to-order item, and it took a while to find the right cloth. The order was for a size 4, and the pattern starts at size 6, so it involved some small alterations, but I am quite pleased with the final result.

As usual, I added cotton lace and linen to lengthen the dress.

Material Notes

vintage linen tablecloth hand embroidered
