This item Reserved, please do not purchase, thank you :-)

Please Read all of the following info Carefully before purchasing:

~This is for a custom order for a USA size 2-6 dress.

***The current wait list is 8- 12 weeks***

~Your dress will not look exactly the same, due to its handmade nature

GO TO RawHemline on FaceBook to find more pictures of this dress :)

~This dress is a loose fitting A line shape dress.
The model in the photograph has the following measurements:
Bust: 29.5 inches
Waist: 26.5 inches
Hips: 31 inches
So the dress will look different on other body shapes!

~This dress is not body hugging, but very loose and flowy. (These dresses are sometimes called tent dresses).
~A belt can be added to tie around the back for fit if desired- please convo me with any specifications ;)

~The dress has a Round neck, but I can make it into a deep scoop neck or off the shoulder style if you would prefer (Sleeves can be added for an additional cost)

~You will need to take your body measurements carefully so that I can make your dress the correct size. Often it helps to measure a dress that you own that fits you well. Please ask for help measuring yourself if you are not sure :)

~This dress is tea stained. The tea staining process produces irregular uneven tones.

~Can be made in darker tea/coffee bath to create more of a yellow/brown tone.

~Size pictured is 'medium': But Due to the style of the dress it can fit US size 2-6 (or Australian size 6-10).

____________Important Additional info _____________________________________


Edges have been frayed and then stitched around to prevent further fraying.

I have taken tight weave muslin and spent hours pulling the threads to cause the fabric to gather or ruche. The texture is beautiful and soft, yet it looks like a ragged rock face.

I have sewn over the gathered muslin to secure it.

The muslin is attached to the neckline of the dress and drapes down to create movement.
I have also attached a piece of free form lace- created by sewing over various scraps of fabric- silk, chiffon, vintage lace, calico- between layers of "solvy" (Eco friendly dissolvable plastic).

NOTE: Pictured here- On the back, I have used a section of a sleeve to create a winged effect. Its movement in the wind is truly beautiful...
I do not have any more of the same sleeves I used left now, so the one I use on the back of yours will be different, but still in keeping with the original design. :)

All my work is left deliberately "raw". Please read my shop policies for more detail on my sewing philosophy!
