SLINK through the Garden bewitched gown
RITES is a collection of imagery and garments created in 2019 as a visual library of regeneration. These garments signify the deep internal processes of energy movement that occur during of personal rites of passage.
The SLINK Bewitched Gown is made from bias cut rayon crepe (probably 1940's era). Festooned with pearl buttons in the front, and back neckline sweeps down in a V. Hand blockprinted in Emerald Green and Powder Pink: Sun, Cat, Centipede, Comb, Yarrow, Bull, Serpent, Swan, Horseshoe, Seven-Point stars, and Card Suits.
Some very small snags/holes on bottom edge (could either be mended or hemmed into the skirt).
Measurements taken flat: Bust: 19", Waist 15.5", Hips 20".
Bias Cut allows for some stretch, but the bustline would best fit on someone 5'6 or shorter.
Please email with any questions.
READ CAREFULLY: The bewitched gowns are reclaimed vintage garments, adorned with hand blockprinting from our library of original carvings. The Bewitched gowns are a resurrection process: beloved garments are brought back to life through beauty magic. Small imperfections in these garments (small holes, smudges, or discoloration) are seen as a reflection of life lived. If you are looking for a gown of perfection, this is not your gown. If you are seeking a ritual garment dressed in living imagery: here's your gown.
The Bewitched gowns are meant for tromping through forests, for ritual, for rainstorm dancing, or for hanging on the wall if you wish. Please wash by hand and hang to dry in moonlight.
