I love buying vintage for the purpose of reworking and reviving them and changing them into something much more wearable, modern and unique. I design/drape them directly onto my stand and use a mixture of both new & vintage trims/fabrics.
This dress started off as a plain, simple vintage slip dress in a gorgeous vermillion colour where I then draped a complimentary lace fabric in a romantic, whimsical style. Tucks and pleats were hand sewn into place and the neckline was finished with a heavy cotton fuchsia guipure lace trim.
Measurements: Recommended size UK10/US8/MEDIUM for a body skimming fit.
Bust: approx 44cm
Waist: approx 41cm
Length = approx 97cm with adjustable straps
I would recommend dry clean but a gentle hand wash should be OK.
Please note: Each piece may have slight imperfections which is just part of the overall aesthetic and may not be to everyone's taste such as raw finishes, contrast/visible hand stitching etc..
