Hi all

I'm new here and hoping to start making my own clothes and small crafts more often. Right now it would be great if I could get some help from the online community here. Of course I can only post links right now so I've posted the link at the end below
I really like the white dungarees she is wearing, however dont know what type of fabric/technique was used to make that effect. would love some help if anyone know? or what type of fabric is used as I want to make some myself!

thanks in advance Smiley

Hello & welcome!

The fabric appears to be a vintage chenile bedsread. You can find them for sale here & there but they can be costly & fragile. I'm certain you could mimic the look by hand stiching thread bunches to your own fabric or pre-fab garment if you wanted to put in that sort of time.
