Vintage handmade size S peach & gold upcycled evening dress

£45.00

Product description

Be the Belle of the Ball in this wonderful handmade dress!

This beautiful piece has been upcycled and repaired. It has been carefully reinforced and concealed using painstakingly handcrafted flowers, created from donated felted cashmere, alongside delicate beadwork. This has created a beautiful textural detail, and the colours subtly enhance the glistening peach fabric of the dress.

Seams were then reinforced, and the lining shortened, to restore the dress to it's former glory. Featuring a classic 1950's shaped, with a delicate piped waistline, full skirt and original zip fastening, this figure enhancing piece is truly lovely.

Pair this stunning piece with nude court shoes and simple jewelry for an elegant garden party, summer wedding!

This glistening little number has never been worn and originally sold for £95.00.

Actual garment measurements:
Bust - 34"
Waist - 26"
Length from shoulder - 52"
