The dreamy vintage dress from the 1980s has refashioned and resigned by Jen and our in house atelier to create a unique one of kind dress that you wont see on anyone else.

In our usual pristine condition, the dress is double breasted by design and nipped in at the waist to create that bombshell 80s silhouette. The skirt is designed with a pleated frill, we have sympathetically re purposed the hem which shows off the leg a bit of leg to show when you walk  Further drama us added by the specially designed and created by hand oversized dramatic bow wnd cumberband  corsage which where indicative of couture of the 1980s which we have  seen a return to on the runway in the last two years.  When this dress came to us it had not been worn and condtion is pristine immaculate

Perfect for a wedding , races or for evening special occasion wear and can be altered to perfect the fit

Condition pristine immaculate ready to wear

Bust 40 inches

Waist 30 inches

Length Shoulder to end of Skirt 33 inches

Size: Will work for sizes UK 12 and size 10 also inview of the belt and oversized design of the dress. also. Please see  for international
