Thisis a long black pod-shaped linen dress with exposed seams and a variety of raw frayed hand-stitched patches, a few of which double as pockets. Yay, pockets! Please see the close-up photos to soak in all the dark, lovely details.
Arm and neck hole are finished with bias trim. Asymmetric hem.
Don't worry about it fraying further; it won't fall apart. All the edges are reinforced with stitching.
