Unique and original, this sexy and sophisticated dress is one of a kind and reconstructed from a vintage silk kimono. This dress is part of my Vintage Gold Label series where I use vintage kimono fabrics to create demi couture and avant garde designs.

This dress will best suit a size 0-4 / xsmall - small (please see complete measurements for sizing below). Love the design but not your size? Please feel free to contact me for inquiries on custom made designs.

Sizing - best suited for the following measurements:

Bust: 32" - 34"
Waist: 24" - 26" (garment measures 26 1/2" flat at waistband)
Hip: 35" - 37" (slightly flexible due to the fullness at the front and back skirt)
Length: measures 32 1/2" from shoulder to hem at center front
Neck drop: this is a very deep neck drop / the neck drop sits at approx. 13" from the shoulder
Waistband position: Top edge waistband position sits at 14" from shoulder

Please feel free to contact me if you are unsure about sizing or have any other questions! I am here to help and can also provide a 'how to measure' chart if required.

I developed this design by first deconstructing the silk vintage kimono it is made from and then draped, folded and pleated until I was satisfied with the finished look. The front closure is finished with a variety of golden buttons - a mix of vintage and salvaged finds. The dress is fully lined - the top half is lined in a pale ivory imitation silk jacquard while the bottom skirt portion is lined in self fabric.

Care and content:
This dress is 100% silk with a portion of the lining being a rayon/polyester blend (which feels like silk). This dress should be dry-cleaned for best care. The original kimono / dress has been dry-cleaned - all vintage fabrics used in my shop are pre-cleaned and examined for quality. The color is a pure black with a subtle jacquard pattern of tropical leaves.

Every item in my shop is hand made with great care and attention to detail. Thanks for stopping by!
