Description

A charming confection of chiffon and sequins from the iconic and collectable British designer, Frank Usher. Dating from the late 1970s or early 1980s, but with more than a nod to the 1930s, this is a perfect dress for a vintage wedding or special event. The under dress is made from a polyester jersey type material, has spaghetti straps, a shaped fitted bodice and waist and fastens with a side zip. The chiffon over dress has gorgeous balloon sleeves, is trimmed at the neck, waist and cuffs with leaves made from sequins and a full ballerina length skirt. The skirt is edged with cream lace.

As pretty from the back as it is the front (see picture 4), this dress would look gorgeous with a picture hat or a ballerina style feather headdress.
In very good vintage condition.

Size label: UK 38

I estimate it would best fit a size 10/12, but please refer to the measurements below laid flat to ensure you are happy with the fit.

Underarm to underarm of the under dress: 17ins/43cm

Waist: 15ins/38cm

Hips: Free

Length Shoulder to Hem: 46ins/117cm

To wear a vintage piece is to own a piece of history. I love to imagine the tales these items could tell. The hemlines, the fabrics, the colours the cut of the cloth all tell a story about the world it was made for. As Coco Chanel said, ‘Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening’. It is indeed wonderful to think such items could exist in people’s wardrobes for so long and that if we are careful we can continue to wear these garments now and pass them on for generations to cherish.
