"Vintage Reproduction" from an original pattern
This classic cocktail dress has the perfect silhouette and drape. The 4 piece super full skirt fits flat against the waist but has a large sweep so it drapes nicely. The skirt is a longer ballerina length which should come down past your calf just above the ankle - but it's ok if you want to shorten it up a bit. Just let me know.
The bodice is fitted at the waist with darts front and back but has gathers from the elastic cord neck band. This dress is so romantic and feminine. It reminds me of a ballroom dancing gown. You just want to waltz in it and twirl that skirt all night long.
Choose either short little puffed cap sleeves which also have an elastic banding or long fitted sleeves with a placket and snap at the wrist.

Check out my photoset of fabrics. Please remember that my fabric stash is always changing. Check to see if your choice is still available. But if you don't see what you were looking for give me a shout. Chances are I may already have it, have it on order, or can get it in a jiffy. I place 1 or 2 fabric orders a week.

ALL SIZES AVAILABLE but not every style lends itself to every body type. If you are unsure if this style will fit your frame, ask me. We may be able to come up with a plan and make alterations so it will fit your body type.
When at all possible I strive to use vintage buttons, buckles, zippers, notions and snaps on all my garments, so some differences in fabrics and options could change depending on availability of materials.
WASH & CARE: Dry clean recommended or hand wash in cold water with delicate fabric soap and hang dry to keep dress looking newer longer.
