This pretty, duck egg blue dress is part of the Arkive Vintage Custom Collection. The sleeves have been shortened, elastic put in the waist to add shape and the length has been shortened to bring the piece up to date.
The lightweight, sheer fabric features an all over feathery pattern in a burgundy tone.
It has a nairu collar with a hook and eye fastening revealing a keyhole at the neckline.
There are pleats running down the front of the bodice adding an elegant design feature.
The elastic at the waistband gives shape to the dress and also allows it to fit various sizes anywhere from a 58cm to 80cm waist.
The skirt has gathering at the waistband, which gives it a lovely shape and fall.
The skirt is lined with an pale greyish blue toned, liightweight fabric which appears to be polyester.
There is a concealed, YKK, grey toned zip opening at the centre back of the dress.
This dress has a 1930's-40's feel to it with it's colour and bodice design, and we think it would look great with a fitted jacket in keeping with the period feel.
