Cotton Satin Wing Bust Dress with Your Choice of Accent Colors at the Bust
Our charming Wing Bust style was made by studying an original from the 50’s designed by the brilliant Alfred Shaheen. The lines are ingeniously flattering and the “wings” at the bust dramatic and whimsical. Waist is flatteringly dropped, just a bit. Boned cups.
The dress can be worn strapless or with a matching button-in halter strap in the contrast color or in white. It’s also lovely strapless.
This snow white fabric has been known as “polished cotton” or “cotton satin” due to its subtle sheen. Polished cotton was very popular at mid century and is difficult to find nowadays, particularly in a substantial weight that gives the luxurious character to vintage garments that we so love.
You may choose to wear this dress with a white or colored crinoline.
Bodice is highly constructed, lined and interlined so that it can be worn without a bra.
- Whirling Turban dresses are noted for their flattering fit; custom- made for just one unique figure.
