I’ve been swooning over this website and the stunning, vintage dresses for so long! After talking to owner Janelle Duff over e-mail, I learned a little more about her unique dresses.
Rosery Apparel is a handmade clothing label by Janelle Duff, a self taught sewer and crafty-type lady from Tasmania, Australia. Each piece is sustainably made from 100% recycled fabrics, such as vintage bedsheets, tablecloths and curtains. This ensures that each piece is one of a kind (or one of a very small few)! Rosery Apparel was created in response to the fast fashion industry, to provide socially conscious individuals with alternative and sustainable options, that are also beautiful.
I was sent the gorgeous Eva Dress in Blue Floral and I was instantly in love with this dress. I literally hung it up on my wall just so I could stare and it whenever I’m not wearing it. The quality is so great and you can tell care went into making this handmade dress. OH and did I mention that the dress has pockets? POCKETS! As if the dress wasn’t amazing enough already!
These dresses are worth the investment. Go. Buy one.
I wore this dress in Prague, Czech Republic. It ended up being a windy, chilly morning (as you can tell by my rosy cheeks and crazy hair) so I ended up pairing this dress with a black sweater.
