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 (circa 1960s?) to make 3 dresses! Cut and sewn locally in NY by our legendary seamstress. These dresses fit like our skirts (see our size chart here)— measure the smallest part of your waist (usually above the belly button). These best fit a 23 inch waist in XS, 25 in S, 27 in M, 29 in L, and 31 in XL (if we're sold out or you need a custom size, see made-to-order).
*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.
