Inspiration

This gorgeous dress was inspired by a beautiful piece of vintage linen featuring embroidered birds. The main fabric was selected to complement the colors and scale of the linen, while the gingham, lace and crochet details bring additional WOW factor.

Fabric

This dress all began with a vintage embroidered pillowcase. From there Art Gallery Fabrics brought this dress together with their amazing floral, and Robert Kaufman was used for the gingham accent.
