This stunning evening dress is made from a beautiful antique pink pure silk dupion fabric with a gold "Fleur de Lis" motif painted on. The demure "V" neckline at the back and bust gathering make for a classic 1950's evening look and the full skirt can be emphasized with a petticoat (as pictured - petticoat not included) for a full 1950s silhouette or left to fall naturally. Perfect for a summer soiree or perhaps a blushing bridesmaid.

This fabric is from a vintage "end of roll" and we have enough to make just four of these lovely dresses. Alternatively, you can choose another vintage fabric from our extensive collection and have a dress custom made in the same style.

This dress will be tailor made to fit your specific measurements. Please take the following measurements and attach them in a "note to seller" when ordering the dress:

************************************************************************************************
Overbust (around the upper part of the chest, above your bust, with the tape measure going under each armpit and around the back)

Bust (the fullest part – taken whilst wearing whatever type of bra you would normally wear)

Underbust measurement (around the ribcage just under the bust)

Natural waist (the smallest part of your waist – normally 1 or 2 inches above your belly button)

Shoulder seam to underbust (from the top of your shoulder with the tape measure going over the centre of one breast to the bottom of your bra - this is to make sure that the top of the waistband sits snugly just underneath your bust)

Underbust to Natural Waist (this is to determine the width of the waistband on the dress – the standard width is 11cm/4 inches but the waistband may need to be a little narrower if you are petite or high waisted or a little wider if you are taller or have a long torso)

Back length (from the nape of your neck – the knobbly bit – to wherever it was you took your natural waist measurement)

Shoulder width (this is best taken straight across the back of the shoulders – from the edge of one shoulder to the other)

Natural waist to the bottom of the knee (this is to determine the length of the skirt – it can be made shorter or longer if prefered)

Upper arm circumference (around the widest part of your upper arm)

Bra Size

Height
