My grandma was a funny girl.
I designed this felted dress in memory of my grandmother contemplating her life in the post-war Soviet Union - not easy, but always cheerful, with bright colors, friends’ gatherings, and joy. Jewelry designer Mary-Beth Piper created a vintage-looking copper brooch with a Tiger Eye stone, reminding of the space exploration era.
The dress is made from merino wool and silk, hand-dyed in shades of rich orange. It has a zipper at the side and a belt with a snap. The wool is very thin, so you will not sweat on a summer day.
Hand wash in warm water if necessary.
Size 6 approximately.
Bust up to 80 cm, waist up to 70 cm, hips up to 90 cm. Length vary from 95 to 100 cm.
