They're an iconic 50's garment and a real must have, and it was time I did my own take on the vintage classic.
This strapless version is hand stitched onto a boned bodice with a gathered, ruffle bust and fine pleated long line bodice all hand stitched in place.
The skirt is layered to make full (no need for nets) with stitched down pleats over the hips and is cut to the knee. The skirt is lined and the dress comes with two ribbon belts for the waist in different complementary colours. Please note that the coloured hem is an optional extra and is not included
