Original 1950s 50s Volup Vintage Cotton House Dress With Orange Novelty Print By Nip And Tuck
This stunning vintage house dress was made from a novelty print in the 1950s. Shades of orange, brown and chartreuse green in the stylised paisley print are just perfect for accessorising. The dress also features an unusual toothed v neckline trimmed with orange binding as well as functional hip pockets with matching decorative trim. The long front metal zip makes this fabulous house dress super easy to wear and the pin ticks either side of the zipper add a lovely detail.
Collar to Hem: 43”
This dress is in good vintage condition throughout.
This garment is available to purchase with or without dress shields. These clever little contraptions have been made by our seamstress to an original 1940s pattern and can be simply attached to your garment by tack stitching at the corners of the underarm seam, pinning (we wouldn’t recommend that, it hurts if it goes wrong, so if you try this, it is at your own risk only) or inserting tiny poppers. They then stand ready to absorb any sweat and body odours as needed and you can simply detach and launder them instead of your garment, saving you a fortune in dry cleaning bills.
They are equally suitable for suits, blazers and dresses and come in two different options:
1. Pure cream cotton for your heavier weight dresses, blazers and suits
2. White cotton muslin for lightweight summer dresses (so they don’t show through the fabric)
They are universally sized and super easy to use even for a sewing novice as only a couple of tiny stitches are required at each side to secure them.
We sell Dress Shields as a standalone item or at a discount if you purchase them with a garment. We will select the appropriate type to match the garment you have purchased.
