byron dress - japanese silk
The unofficial dress of summer '22. This is a perfect-fitting strapless mini dress. Fitted through the waist with a super secure elasticated back and inside shelf bra, then flares A-line style. Split at the back waist for maximum comfort when sitting. There's truly nothing more flattering! Style with heeled boots on a hot city night, or barefoot by the seaside. Matching scrunchie included!
Our entire vintage-fabric-womenswear collection is made using textile remnants dating 1930-1999, meaning each piece has zero impact on the environment and is what we like to call few-of-a-kind™. We only found enough of this silk blend fabric (circa 1990s) to make 3 dresses total! Cut and sewn locally in NY by our legendary seamstress. These dresses fit similarly to our cult-fav chelsea skirt (see our size chart here)— measure the smallest part of your waist (usually above the belly button). These best fit a 23-24 inch waist in XS, 25-26 in S, 27-28 in M, 29-30 in L, and 31-32 in XL (if we're sold out or you need a custom size, see made-to-order). Size up if in between as this fabric is non-stetch.
*Please note, our upcycled vintage-fabric pieces can be delicate, and the content not always guaranteed. Dry clean preferred (and if you're going to wash do so COLD and hang dry)— or try lazy washing: spot-clean, pat odorous areas with vodka, and place in the freezer for a day.
