Made To Order - Outback Wife Elaine Floral Picnic Dress


MADE TO ORDER DRESS - CAN BE MADE IN SIZES 8-18. PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR SIZE FROM THE SIZE GUIDE INCLUDED ON THE LAST IMAGE AND INCLUDE THIS IN THE NOTES AT CHECKOUT. MADE TO ORDER DRESSES WILL SHIP WITHIN 3-4 WEEKS. 

Vintage inspired dress in a stunning floral barkcloth material, featuring clusters of flowers in shades of pink, lilac and blue against a black background.

This beautiful floral fabric is from the Outback Wife fabric collection, inspired by sumptuous vintage florals. Each fabric in this collection is named after a real "Outback Wife" and this design's namesake is Elaine - you can read more about her story here. The barkcloth material is made from cotton with a lovely weight and a textured finish, making it perfect for elegant dresses with flared skirts like the Picnic Dress, and gives the dress a real vintage feel. The skirt is a little fuller and more gathered on this dress than others I make in this style as the fabric is extra wide, creating skirts that are made to twirl in!

The dress will have a sleeveless fitted bodice, boat neckline and gathered skirt. The bodice is shaped with curved princess seams to create a flattering feminine fit and lined in a contrast blue polka dot cotton for a splash of extra colour! The skirt has a full gathered shape with pockets tucked into the side seams, and will measure approx. 63cm from waist to hem, finishing just below the knee. Finished with an invisible zip in the centre back. Print placement may vary to the pictured dress as this item is made to order.

100% cotton, handmade in my studio in Staffordshire.
