byron dress - nouveau stretch
Your fail-safe summer outfit. This is a perfect-fitting mini dress, so comfortable yet so flattering you'll find yourself reaching for it time and time again. Tube-top-style, strapless with a super secure elasticated back and inside shelf bra. Fitted through the high-waist, then flares A-line to really accentuate your curves. The back is slightly longer and split at the waist for maximum comfort when walking/sitting. Style with heeled boots on a night out in the city, or barefoot by the seaside. BTW, we're consistently DM'ed from customers saying this silhouette fits their small waists & wide hips better than any other dress they own
— it's truly a hit!
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 stretch blend (circa 1970s) to make 2 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 models an size XS.
*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.
