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 from a simple black slip dress with lace inserts where I then draped the skirt using pleated organza and spot tulle mesh to create volume and drama to this style. I finished off with some grosgrain, satin and velvet roses.
Vintage slip is labelled as a size Small.. recommended size UK6-8
Bust approx 37cm
Length = 130cm
I would recommend dry clean.
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 hand stitching etc..
