Square Wave Dress

Rivaling the creative brilliance and aural beauty of My Bloody Valentine without having achieved any of the commercial success (sadly!), The Ecstasy of Saint Theresa was a Czech shoegaze band that was around in the '90s... and I happen to love them. I love them so much, I named this dress after one of their songs that I totally and completely adore. This dress is a piece upon which I performed major sewing surgery; it was once just a sad, old discarded dress from the '50s that was kindly handed over to me. I loved the geometric squares and the amazing colors of the fabric, so I decided to clean it up and turn the whole thing into a pinafore-style dress with ruffles and big buttons and ribbon trim to compliment the sweet fabric. Here it is after the overhaul.

This wee dress fits a 30-32" chest and a 24-26" waist (so about an XS). This dress zips up the back. Want this in a bigger size? Get in touch!

Square Wave Dress is available for $65 in my Etsy shop.
