The Garden Party


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 the matching halter strap in the contrast French Blue color or in white – you’ll receive both.

This snow white fabric has been known as “polished cotton” or “cotton satin” since it has a subtle sheen. Polished cotton was very popular at mid century and is very difficult to find nowadays, particularly in a substantial weight that gives the luxurious character to vintage garments that we so love.

We have used a matte cotton in French Blue for the contrast on this dress.

We’ve photographed the dress with a white crinoline. The crinoline is not included.

Bodice is highly constructed, lined and interlined.

  • Whirling Turban dresses are noted for their beautiful fit; they are not “off-the-rack “dresses and so will not fit people who are “approximately” the stated sizes.
  • If you need any help determining your body measurements or if you think you may need alterations, please CALL US.  We’d be delighted to assist you personally!  We only want you to have this dress if you will be absolutely delighted with it.
