My last stock delivery came with several of these bold floral mini dresses. There's a possibility they were all made by the same person! This one did require some restoration. The fabric is in great condition, no visible marks or pulls but the problem was the seams. The polyester fabric could probably go on and on but the cotton thread had disintegrated in places and nearly every seam needed re-stitching. I also had to replace the zipper and hand stitch some of the hem. The lower hem and sleeve hems had been hand stitched so I have just added to that as, I do like to keep as much of the original creation in place as possible.
It's fascinating to think that the maker shopped for this fabric, chose the pattern and then took the time to make a dress of their choice. It had obviously been repaired by hand at some stage which again means it was a treasured piece of clothing.
I hope this dress will find its way into another wardrobe to be cherished once more.
