Selvage Frock - Jodie

June 13, 2011 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

Jodie blogs from Ballarat, Australia and at VintageRicRac. We can unequivocally state that she does not have that little understood disorder, selvage-phobia. We are head over heels crazy for this dress she constructed entirely of strips of fabric selvage. It is not a reach to say that this artistic frock rocks abstract qualities and a pop art sensibility…..not to mention a lovely vintage fashion feel.
