*Vintage 1950's Handmade Size 10 Sleeveless Lace Lined Satin Evening Dress in Black

£75.00

Product description

The gloomy, winter weather has given us an affinity for the dark side. Monochromatic velvet, lace and corset-esque silhouettes, with a romanticised Victoriana feel.

This stunning handmade evening, cocktail style dress is great for any formal occasion this season.

With it's tight fitting bodice and waist, and long skirt, nipped at waist for shape, all you need for an amazing night time look is a big velveteen coat to keep the chill off your sleeveless shoulders.

The slit at the back of the skirt shows off the white lacey lining, keeping the monochrome trend perfectly.

In good condition for a handmade piece, there is a small tear to the back seam (as pictured) but this is hardly noticeable!
