This elegant dress is made from a vintage brocade fabric with an art deco style gold and amber weave. (Please note that the close up photo of the fabric is a better representation of it's colour than the photos of the dress whish are slightly washed out looking). The neckline is demure at the front and dipped at the back and the fitted waistband is outlined with yellow piping. The dress is tailored with a slim tulip skirt to create a flattering hourglass silhouette.

Alternatively, you can choose another vintage fabric from our extensive collection and have a dress custom made!


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:


Bust (the fullest part – over your bra)

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)

Bra Size

Frequently asked questions about digforvictory

Yes! The majority of our dresses are lined, the type of material used to line the dress will depend on the fabric of the outer. We consider the appearance, comfort and wearability of the lining when choosing it. The skirts of our dresses are commonly lined with an anti-static synthetic as this prevents it riding up or sticking to tights. You can request to have the dress lined fully in 100% cotton but this will incur an extra cost.
