I've taken a vintage night gown made of French metis linen that I found in a flea market in the south of France and altered it into a mini tunic dress. Perfect for that French country vibe. There is a delicate lace trim around the neckline.

The night gown is very probably from the early 1900s.

Measurements taken with the dress lying flat:
shoulder to shoulder - 21 inches or 53 cm
chest - 22.5 inches or 57 cm (or 45 inches or 114 cm around)
waist and hips larger than chest measurement
sleeve length - 7 inches or 18 cm
length (shoulder to bottom of dress) - 32 inches or 82 cm

This is part of my Reclaimed line, made from forgotten fabric that I make new again. The idea for my Reclaimed pieces came from seeing how my mother-in-law meticulosuly mended her children's clothes. Jeans were patched and re-patched at the knees. Holes in shirts were carefully camouflaged with fabric of similar print. It spoke to me of love, frugality, and a natural environmental awareness.

Don't worry, despite its age, this dress is in great shape, no tears nor holes.
