The longer length enchances the drama of the dress with a v neck and a split to the back, whether your a disco lover or your vibe is Stevie Nick this one of kind head turner will make you stand out from the crown

We see so many 80s party dresses in the world of vintage but the ones to behold stand the test of fashion time. I cant wait to see who wears this ! 

Dress is in great vintage with no obvious flaws but it is handmade and not professionally made dress so some flexibility should be given to the tailoring particularly to the back v neck of the dress but this is no way takes away from the wearability of the piece.

Size Guide

We take pride in providing accurate measurements with an approximation of modern UK with an International equivalent size chart below sizing to help you when choosing  your purchase and  will fit properly  as often vintage sizes differ significantly from modern sizes. 

It is also very helpful if you are aware of your own particular dimensions. If you're not sure, you may easily approximate them by measuring an item of clothes from your own wardrobe that fits well and is laid flat.

Measure the waist flat across  and for the bust from pit to pit in inches and then double it  Length is measured from middle of the shoulder to the end of the garment. 

We measure all our items flat and use the guide below
