byron dress - japanese silk
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 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). Sam models a S 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.
