Dainty Clothes from Deadstock Fabrics Made in California

Christy Dawn is a clothing company that creates dresses and other garments from the leftover fabrics of larger fashion houses. Using “deadstock fabric” that may have otherwise been tossed can save a lot of water (from textile production). All their clothes are also made in California by people paid a living wage.

I love the idea of this company, but I’ve yet to find a dress or shirt that truly speaks to me. They add new designs frequently, so I’m faithfully waiting for the right one.

These are my favourites at the moment, in order:

2. The Farrah Blouse

3. The Juliette Dress

4. The Winslet Dress

Most are priced between $150-200 USD with the exceptional dress (such as the Winslet above at $390) coming in a little higher. If you are interested they are also hosting a “25 Days of Christmas” contest on Instagram, where they give away a different dress each day. Find that here.

I am thinking I would love the Juliette Dress if the bodice were a bit more fitted, if it were  a bit shorter (mid-shin), and off-the-shoulder. In essence, feminine and dainty, but with just a hint of added sensuality. The Winslet and Lennon dresses on the other hand are gorgeous as-is, but I’m going to wait a little longer.
