- Lady Vintage Hepburn Dress in Skull and Crossbones -
I got this recently in my hunt for comfortable dresses and got its with my auction haul wins.
I wanted the 16 but settled on the 18 as 16 was sold out and i am too frightened to try the 14. I am glad i went up though. The dress is not too big and either size would have been fine on me.
My chest is now 39 inches around the under bust and as i got the 18, the only thing i notice is that chest area gathers a little due to the high neck and the waist large but this is still so easy to wear.
The dress comes with a thin velvet belt which i promptly lost (argh) but i find this pattern works with red and gold accessories.
This is one of the longer dresses, sitting at just below my knee (173cm tall). The dress features a back zip, a high back and is sleeveless. The material is that stetchy scuba fabric which i am loving for long hours in a office. The seams are all well finished and the hem is properly stiched.
The pattern reminds me of pirates or an old school tattop design. Each skull has a little heart nose space and beautful roses.
So. Another of the Lady vintage wash and wear dress in my stable that is getting a high rotation in my wardrobe. So easy to travel and commute in and arrive fresh as the fabric doesn't crease.
