Sometime in the 1920's, a feed sack manufacturer decided that it could sell more bags if the fabric appealed to farmers' wives. During the money shortages of the Great Depression, and then the cloth shortages during the war, feed sacks enabled women to get the fabric they needed to create the things they could not buy.
This dress features a vintage fabric bodice made from a feed sack manufactured between roughly 1930 and 1960. The skirt is made from 100% cotton, and all fabric has been pre-washed to prevent shrinkage. For best results, machine wash in cold water and tumble dry on low-medium heat. All seams are professionally finished.
