prim dress - upcycled from a vintage tablecloth
The Prim started out as a cross-stitched vintage tablecloth.
We have recycled it into this dress. The tablecloth is the dress's top part, which we combined with sea green linen.
This is part of Re-Love, a small collection that grew out of our efforts to recycle, combined with our infatuation with the handcrafted quality of vintage tablecloths, runners, blankets, and quilts.
Artist Nica Cosio helps us model the Prim. The former Manila resident shows us slices of her new life in La Union in these photos.
As they are made out of vintage found fabric, items in our Re-Love collection are limited edition. We only made five Prims.
Please note that only two Prims have blanket stitches near the bustline; three do not.
Size Guide -
