This vintage dress Swiss dot and lace gown is complete with a tiered petticoat skirt— and such a distinct whimsy, reminding me of the dresses Judy Garland wore in Meet Me in St. Louis. It also draws inspiration from vintage square dancing outfits. Crafted in a red organza flocked with Swiss dots, it's very fitted in the bodice, with a defined yoke waist, offset by a full skirt with layers of tiered flounce, and white lace flounce interspersed. The tiers are backed by a layer of mesh that adds structure and fullness to the skirt, creating a magical sweep with every movement. Note that the hems are unfinished on each layer of tiers throughout, which is an intentional design detail that creates a beautiful seamless look. There is a sweet bow detail at the V-neckline. It comes with a bolero that matches the white lace details— I love the ribbon details interwoven with the lace. The dress was made in the USA, and is fully lined, with a hidden zip closure in the back.

The Vintage Crystal Earrings pictured are also available

Great vintage condition, with very minor wear commensurate with age, including one tiny bit of fraying to the fabric at the very hem, but it is absolutely not noticeable at all when worn. (Even when closely inspired it looks like part of the intentionally-unfinished design.) With any questions about the specific condition or size, please email shop@verybreezy.com for additional photos or measurements, as all sales are final.
