Part of the challenge of vintage is finding the right fit, in a style that you love. It always seems to me that the dress with the perfect fit finds you. Dame has procured a very special collection of early 50s dresses. All handmade by local east coast Boston-NYC dressmakers, about 10 dresses in all ranging in style from summer to fall all made for a 25" waist. I'd say about a size 2-4 depending on your actual waist measurements.
These dresses belonged to someone who was very dear to me , so I was pleased as punch to discover they were a perfect fit for an old friend of mine who just happens to have a fabulous sense of style. This dress in particular is a beautiful heavy weight textured cotton, still bright white with the prettiest dress makers tag.
This dress has found a new life after being in storage for the past oh 40 years, and I'm glad that a part of my aunt's youth is now out socializing in NYC, galleries, cosmos, the works, somehow it seems just as it should be.
The very picture of Audry Hepburn!! Enjoy, and hopefully another dress will find you!
