“Southern Belle” vintage HOODED bathrobe, designed using original vintage chenille bedspread fabrics. The focal point is a gorgeous charming Southern Lady in a Victorian style dress, sourced from a scarce novelty bedspread from the 50s.
Since the rear panel is lightweight, I chose a crisp cotton medium weight chenille fabric with wide thick tufting for the front panels, also circa 1950s era. Custom patchwork belt tie is crafted entirely of handcut vintage chenille quilt squares. Inside upper neckline, you’ll find shabby little floral accents.
We specialize in shabby cottage chic designs, so when I say that, I mean it – you’ll notice natural distressing to this fabric that was deliberately incorporated, such as skipped needletufting & pulls which is inherent to the fabric itself. 🌼🌻🌼

Shabby chic. Cottage style. Farmhouse chic. The Cottage Divine specializes in a blend of all three, emphasizing a curated selection of chenille bedspreads, robes, fabric, quilt squares & more.
Why vintage chenille? Because of its availability in an endless array of colors & textures…its unique ability to adapt to both vintage and modern settings…Wherever it is incorporated, chenille infuses an unmatched warmth & nostalgia.
Oh, one little mention: once it enchants you, a single piece of chenille will quickly multiply – and you’ll never quite have enough 🌷
