Amazing vintage 60s purple velvet mini dress. It's mod, it's witchy, it's everything I want in a dress. The color is rich, the fabric is ultra soft. The dress has a wide neckline with a little sweetheart style dip at the center. The sleeves have full circle flounce cuffs with a lavender lining. Empire waist features a bow at the front. Zips in the back. Vintage handmade. Other than the bow drooping a smidge, the dress is in excellent condition with no flaws. Clean and ready to wear.

Measurements:
chest- up to 35"
empire waist- 26"/27" max
hip- 38"
length- 31.5"
shoulder- 14.75"
sleeve length from shoulder seam- 23"
Fabric does not stretch.
Dress form is a US size 4.

I combine shipping on multiple items.

*MEASURING TIP*
My clothing measurements are taken with garments laying flat. Chest and hip measurements are doubled. The best way to utilize this is to take a similar garment you own and measure it laying flat, then compare your numbers with mine-they do not need to be exactly the same, just similar. If you know your body measurements, remember that some garments (especially non-stretch fabrics) require a few inches of wiggle room in areas such as the hip. See my "About" page for a tip on determining your body measurements.

FAQs

Please use the measurements and info provided in the item details. Letter and number sizing is an approximation. There is no industry standard on sizing, so it can be subjective. (This is why you might wear a 2 from one big box store and a 6 from another.) I urge you to use the measurements provided to determine your best fit.
My prices are fair and firm. Sorry, I don't give discounts.
When buying multiple items, shipping will auto-combine in your cart. On the rare occasion there will still be an overage. I refund overages exceeding $3.
Only for people I know.
