Thistle Purple Taffeta & Pink Lace V- Neck Dipped Hem Dress

£210.00 incl tax

This stunning dress is made from a beautiful Purple shot Taffeta fabric and an intricate floral Pink lace. The V- Neck darted bodice offers a flattering fit along with the Cap sleeves to keep it formal.

Seen here with a sash bow in Silver Pink shot silk dupion, this is an optional extra and can be selected from the dropdown menu.

Taffeta is a very glamorous fabric due to its two tone quality and luxurious sheen, it was a very popular evening dress fabric in the Fifties.This dress has a Flared skirt with a dipped hem (which means the skirt is shorter at the front then at the back) This looks particularly effective when worn without a petticoat as the natural drape of the fabric creates a cascade effect. It can also be emphasized with a tulle petticoat (as pictured - petticoat not included)

This dress is fullly lined and has a zip fastening at the centre back.

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.
