Painted Dress with Neck Tabs

Added Apr 12, 2013

Kingston, Jamaica






Fell in love with this painted linen fabric the moment I saw it. A lined dress for work that has cap sleeves, waist seams, tucked skirt, side slant pockets, split at back and invisible zipper. Four tabs are evenly spaced at the front neckline and trim with buttons.

I really hope all the details are captured properly for viewing. It gave me hard time to photograph. Oh well I love everything about it and the way it fits and look…Yeah happy me:-)

    Gorgeous dress kisses and beautifully sewn. I made a dress out of painted linen which I absolutely loved and unfortunately, I took it to a dry cleaner to be cleaned and the cleaning process removed the paint. So please don’t take it to a dry cleaner to be cleaned. Wash carefully by hand in mild soap.

      Thanks Schnui! I will certainly take your advise I have no intentions to take it to a dry cleaner. I am going to gently wash it without even ringing it and hang it out to dry. Love it too much

    i totally agree with cathy, i love this dress. its just gorgeous on you. the fabrics fab and the gold belt picks up the flecks of colour in the dress. the tabs at the neck and little tucks are simply classy. another triumph. your last photo looks to be really lovely, shame you can"t lighten it up a bit? i have a few apps on my phone and laptop which do this x
