byron dress - knit chevron
A little fairy outfit. This is a strapless mini dress with a straight neckline, inside shelf bra, fully elasticated back, and A-line skirt. Split at the back waist (for ease when sitting). Stretchy & fitted through the waist, then flares (nothing more flattering). Perfect with lace-up boots for going out on a hot summer 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 sheer (and lined) knit fabric (circa 1970s) to make 9 dresses! Made 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). Ruby is usually an XS, and models an XS here.
*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.
