This dress was originally made from a roll of reclaimed black Irish Linen, and then with a black wool/rayon mix crepe, both of which we have subsequently sold out of!
Since this dress has been requested by many customers in need of a L.B.D (little black dress) we have decided to buy black linen new from a local fabric store; as we just can't bear to see this dress resigned to the history books!
