In love...

I am head over heels in love....with a dress.  This floor length gown with sweetheart neckline and ever so slightly puffed sleeves was thrifted by Amanda when I was about 7 months pregnant.  The dress was beautiful on the hanger but was not going to budge over my growing belly.  The baby in that growing belly is now 8 months old, so I figured I could take the plunge and try on the dress.  It fits to perfection--the zipper just pulls shut without a millimeter to spare.  But alas, I have nowhere to wear the dress so I figured I would take some photos of it and send it out into the world...or into our etsy shop.

40s floor length dress with navy polka dot bodice and cream mesh layered skirt
Fully lined (no slip required!  In the photos you can see two sets of 'bra straps'--one is my bra, the other is the interior of the dress).  Outer layer of skirt is about 4 inches longer than under layer and hem is unfinished (so it may need trimmed/mended).  $125.

Flat Measurements:  
Shoulder to shoulder- 13.25 inches
Pit to pit- 15.5 inches
Waist- 13 inches
Length (to hem of inner slip)- 57 inches

  1. It fits you like a glove and is GORGEOUS and so unique...how can you bear to part with it?! :)

  2. Do NOT sell that!! It's too perfect!

  3. Oh goodness it is amazing and so perfect. If you think you'll wear it often, definitely keep it, but if you don't believe you'll get a lot of wear from it, I think there is nothing wrong with selling it to someone who might. That's great that you were able to get down so much after pregnancy. It took me a long time to get back to "normal" after my two. Hard to find a time to wear fancy dresses like this gorgeous one when you're a mama!
