This is a short series of dresses which I'm calling "l'Orientale", as it was designed around this wonderful out of print fabric by Romo that I happened across, that features motifs and scenes with a Victorian 'chinoiserie' feel. The dress has angled pleats over the bust, widely-set shoulder straps featuring vintage buttons, and a flirty, drop waisted skirt made from two layers of pure linen. Undarted through the body, a little matching tie brings it in to the waist. A super comfy yet elegant and striking dress, that always draws compliments each and every time I wear it! The colours are strong, and moody - rich lacquer blue, congealed blood, cranberry, powder blue... There will only be one dress in each colour-way so each buyer will truly have a one-off dress! This listing is for a custom-sized dress, with the cranberry-coloured bodice as seen in the pics (you will not receive the ready-made dress, as that one is mine), made just for you. If you'd like it in one of the other colours, please see my other listings. Measurements I will need: - bust - overbust - waist - hip - preferred length from shoulder to hem - height in feet and inches This dress is hand-washable, and irons up a treat! Thanks for looking, please convo with questions!
