Silk Ruffled Bust
Classic '50's Sheath ultra-fitted bodice with so very flattering 3/4 full skirt. Tiny silk satin ruffles hand sewn to bodice and finished with narrow under-bust sash tied in a bow that has trailing ends.
Made in a cotton fabric that is custom-hand-woven especially for Whirling Turban which we spent several years developing to achieve a true mid-century look and peerless quality.
The fabric has a subtle metallic gold fiber woven into it, giving it a sheen like an orchid petal in the morning dew. The result is rich and has the elegance of a vintage fabric.
Since the fabric is so substantial that the skirt just doesn't require a lining and most of our customers wear full skirts with petticoats. Tell us if you'd like a lining added to the skirt. Bodice is fully lined, interlined, structured, boned-bodice with the signature Whirling Turban cling.
Made to be worn snugly and fit YOU with a couture fit. You need to try a loaner bodice before buying so we are assured a perfect fit. See details below on this page.
Can be worn strapless or with the matching white halter strap that is included. EXTRAS: At a small additional charge we can make you a colored halter strap and bow in any color (black would be lovely!) You can also order hand-sewn, matching couture bows to wear on your wrist, on your shoes or in your hair.
Another option you can order from us (but which is not included) is the matching belt with the mother of pearl buckle, shown in the photos. Be ready for the famous Whirling Turban MOVIE STAR FIT!
Crinoline in photo is not included but we'd can help you get the most vintage-authentic crinoline on the at the best price. You can also wear this dress much "pouffier" by wearing more than one crinoline.
Be ready for the famous Whirling Turban MOVIE STAR FIT! We do not sell these dresses by dress size as couture cannot be achieved that way.
