This is an extra special vintage fabric called 'Madras' and shows a gorgeous floral design which enchants us with large blossoms with a highly illustrative twisting style which reminds us of traditional Indian henna tattoos! Jade green blooms, pale blue hues and baby pinks against a rich brick red background.
This wonderful fabric is a cotton satin which has an incredible weave which lends itself to a more formal floral dress because it creates a luxurious sheen.
The tailored bodice has an elegant bateau neckline that dips to a ‘V’ at the back, with a fitted waistband and the a-line skirt hangs beautifully in this fabric. We've added gorgeous soft silver satin piping to highlight the cinched in waistband.
Like all of our dresses this is fully lined which means you don't need to worry about transparency in certain light!
Alternatively, you can choose another vintage fabric from our collection and have a dress custom made.
This dress can be made to order in a range of standard sizes (UK 6-20) or tailor made to measure for an additional £25.
Please consult our sizing chart and measurement info "here" before ordering.
The standard skirt length for this dress is 23" to 25" - knee length on most people - but please put a note in the "Additional Information" box at the bottom of the page if you would like the skirt on your dress to be made slightly shorter or longer.
