Swing Dress // Ink + Indigo
Inspired by the feedsack quilts of the maker Jess' great grandmothers in Appalachia, this dress will envelop you with comfort and care. Each piece features sections of an unfinished antique quilt top, repurposed to live a new life. The antique textiles are paired with a new mid weight organic linen/cotton blend, straightforward and sturdy but with a beautiful hand. Although all the quilt tops will be in the same color family (indigo and neutral shades) the patterns may vary from piece to piece.
A note on antique textiles - many of these fabrics have lived long and storied lives before they came into my care and sometimes they show their age. This could be an old repair, foxing (age spots), or water discoloration. To me, these are part of the story of the textile and I find them beautiful. But some folks struggle with those imperfections and I get it! Best to choose a piece made from new materials, in that case.
