Charcoal for Vintage Purists! Plus Size
Often referred to as the “Bombshell Dress”, flattering WIDE V-neck that teeters dangerously on the outermost corner of your shoulders! Adorable, three quarter length sleeves. Draping and lines that are so universally complimentary that this may be the most flattering dress of all time.
Luxurious, Whirling Turban quality, made by hand in a dressmaking shop, not a factory. Find unsolicited customer reviews about our workmanship on Youtube!
Locally hand-woven 100% cotton fabric made just for Whirling Turban using black fibers in one direction of the weave mixed with rich, slate gray fibers in the other direction for a slimming, iridescent deep gray sharkskin effect. It’s a sophisticated alternative to black. The fabric and construction look like a gorgeous vintage dress in brand new condition as opposed to the modern, “vintage inspired” products made with shortcuts that eliminate the magical charm of genuine mid-century dresses. Our customers LOVE this style and buy them in several colors.
There is no more figure-flattering shape than this 3/4 circle skirt. Lovely with or without a crinoline petticoat (not included).
This sample dress comes in this size:
Bust : 41.5 ” (you can fudge here a little, especially smaller)
Waist : 33.5″ (you should not fudge here more then 3/4″)
Skirt length from waist to finished hem : 29 ”
Proportioned for a woman of average height
Above are the body measurements for this dress. Please measure yourself with a dressmaker’s tape as Whirling Turban’s fit more precisely than off the rack dresses.
