Vintage Irish linen

June 7, 2015 at 12:09 am 1 comment

I have just purchased this vintage Irish linen dress for $6, size 8 is too small for me but I’m thinking of deconstructing and eco dyeing it a la India Flint style.

However I would hate to do this if it has a provenance that is more important when left in the original condition.  The dress has a Moygashel label and is well tailored with sleeve and pleat godets.

If you know anything about this garment let me know before I re-purpose it.

It also has a metal side zipper. I would love to know the age of the dress. I visited a few online sites but am still not sure.
