Deepest Blue, 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 vintage tea length 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 “sharkskin” made just for us- looks like silk. Black fibers are used in the lengthwise directions of the weave and blue fibers are used in the crosswise direction of the weave, giving it a subtle iridescent effect that’s also slimming since the black fibers create a “shadow” as they go around your body. Color hard to describe, but is a deep, dark blue; sophisticated and luscious. Not purplish at all.
The fabric looks absolutely vintage since it is custom-woven exactly like a mid-century fabric under our auspices. There is no more figure-flattering shape than this full skirt. Lovely with or without a crinoline petticoat (not included).
