Guatemalan Rose- Dress

dress made from Guatamalan fabrics

This dress Guatemalan Rose is part of the Guatemalan Takeover Ensemble. I have always loved the fabrics and embroideries that come from Mexico and South America, always vibrant and full of life.

The dress is an adaptation of a Butterick pattern. The fabrics include the incredible center piece down the bodice which is a vintage woven Guatemalan fabric that was given to me by a friend. The sleeves are made from strips of two old embroidered shirts found at Am Vets, leftover sections of the vintage fabric on the bodice, and additional new cotton and Guatemalan fabrics. The linen skirt of the dress is also trimmed with some of the same fabrics, and was a remnant at the fabric store.
