Description

Strolls in the garden. Brunches with girlfriends. Concerts at twilight. Dates with hubby. This rosey little Don Loper wiggle dress can do it all! Ultra-tailored with a nipped waist and room for a generous bosom in the wrap-style bust, the silk whispers sweet nothings over your curves, printed with flowers of blush and hot pink while deep sage green pops through. Comes down low for a pencil skirt, landing almost mid-calf with a faux slit in back allowing you to move with ease. Flirty, feminine, and '50s sexy!

• floral printed silk or silk blend
• sleeveless with gathered straps
• wrap-style gathered bust
• v-back
• nipped waist
• long pencil skirt with waist pleats
• faux slit in back
• below knee to mid-calf length
• fully lined
• metal zipper closure in back

~ S I Z I N G ~
• Best approximates: Extra Small, or 0-2
• Bust: 34-38"
• Waist: 23"
• Hip: 36"
• Length from mid-shoulder to waistline: 16"
• Length from waistline to hem: 30"

OTHER SIZING NOTES: This wiggle's little in the middle, but she got much back! And bust. Be mindful the waist is an Extra-Extra Small, or 00, while the rest of the measurements could fit up to a regular Small, or 4. We recommend measuring out a similar piece of clothing that fits you well and comparing those numbers to the measurements above to best determine fit. Model is 5'7" with a 32" bust, 24" waist, and 35" hip.

Brand/Label: Don Loper Originals
Material: Feels like silk, or possibly acrylic silk
Condition: Excellent! Up close, there are areas of differently colored threads indicating repairs or resizing was done at one point. One of the loops around the gathered shoulders is stitched just a bit further down than center, but there are no real flaws on this bombshell dress!

FAQs

Yes! We're happy to reserve an item for you for up to 48 hours.
Yes! For all items $200 or more, we are happy to offer a layaway payment plan. Details will vary depending on the item, so please message us about the specific piece you have in mind. Typically we will break up the payments as three separate listings here on Etsy to all be paid no more than 2 weeks apart from each other. Message us for more details!
We recognize there is an inherent risk in buying something you can’t try on in person. We've done our best to estimate the modern day size equivalent for each item, but we strongly recommended using a cloth measuring tape to measure out a similar item you already own that fits you well, and then compare those measurements to the ones listed.

Unless otherwise noted, the measurement of an item is taken lying flat and then doubled for an approximate circumference where appropriate (such as the bust, waist, and hip). Length is generally taken from the mid-shoulder, or top of shoulder strap, for tops and dresses; or the waistline for pants and skirts, to the very bottom of the item’s hem.

Feel free to send us a message if you need help!
We’re very sorry, but due to the irreplaceable nature of vintage, we cannot offer returns or exchanges. Vintage pieces are often one of a kind and can be delicate, and the risk of incurring damage with return transactions is simply too great. It is our responsibility to note flaws and provide you with accurate measurements. It is your responsibility to read them and determine if they will fit you.

We want you to be thrilled with your purchase! Please never hesitate to ask for more details or photos before purchasing so you can buy with confidence. If upon receiving your item you find something terribly wrong that makes it dysfunctional (i.e., a broken strap that wasn’t noted), please message us and we will do our best to make it right!
In compliance with the European Union’s Consumer Rights Directive, we will make an exception to our no-returns policy only to EU citizens under the following guidelines. You must contact us within 14 days of receiving your item. For us, this means 14 calendar days from the date your tracking number has indicated the package was delivered to the address provided. The item must be returned in its original sent condition within 7 days after confirmation of the return. You must pay the return shipping cost and provide a tracking number of the return shipment. Your refund will be issued within 14 days of receipt of undamaged item.
Sorry, we cannot receive visitors! Check back to see if we have any pop-up shop appearances to announce, where we can meet you in person and let you sample our treasures to your heart's delight!
We get it—sometimes you need that special something, like, now! We are happy to offer you the option of selecting USPS Priority Mail Express at checkout. For express deliveries, including domestic overnight and international 3-5 day, you must place your order by 2PM PST. Otherwise there may be a one day delay in shipment, per local post office pick up hours. If you’re in doubt, just message us and we’ll do our best to help you figure out your options. There are rare instances when, if we are out when your order is placed, we just won't make it back in time to package your item and get it to the post office by the cut-off time. In those cases, there will usually only be a one day delay in shipment.
We package your items with care. Most are wrapped in acid-free tissue paper and then placed in a protective plastic sleeve to prevent wetness from leaking in should the package journey through rain. If an item is especially small, we may ship it in a padded envelope instead of a box to help save you money on shipping charges. We are not responsible for any damage that may occur during shipment. Shipping and packaging materials are recycled when suitable and we encourage reusability. If the box fits, use it!
