A piece of history, inspired by Vivian Leigh’s gorgeous costumes in Gone With The Wind…
Hand-crafted using 4 vintage Cabin Craft bedspreads along with coordinating deep green Bates pop facings, wrist cuffs and decadent collar fringe.
Carefully chosen appliquéd selection of premium Cabin Craft florals has been sewn to the lower front collar, along with the original Cabin Craft tag that was still on the spread used for the two front panels. This intricate display has been specially sewn such that the reverse side of the collar takes an an old, paper mache-type effect for an antiquated look.
This has been intentionally distressed to give it an old, home-spun essence – we did deep curves to join the front panels with the rear and added a handcut flower to each joint for depth, left some tiny jagged fabric cuts near the fringe, and incorporated natural fabric distressing in effort to give this an antiqued appearance.
The pattern used for this design was cut to a Large; however that’s vintage sizing which is always far smaller than modern. By today’s standards this may fit up to a M or smaller L, depending on your desired fit.

All of our handcrafted chenille robes are designed to tell a story using one-of-a-kind textiles from long ago. As such, we incorporate natural age distressing and other attributes intentionally into the finished piece and do not specifically make note of them.
We select only premium quality fabrics in good to excellent vintage condition to use in our designs. Virtually all the chenille we work with is 100% cotton or less commonly, a softer cotton blend.
