weho dress - chiffon paisley
A little fairy dress. This is a slouchy backless mini dress featuring an asymmetrical pointed hemline and adjustable halter-neck with extra-long ties swirling down the back. Perfectly constructed darts cinch each side of the bust for a super secure feeling (never falling out). Cut slightly loose through the entire silhouette, but especially A-line from the waist for that perfect flounce when in motion. Style with knee boots for a night out in the city, or barefoot by the seaside. DISCLAIMER: best when worn with a vintage chain belt!!!
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 fluid silk chiffon fabric (circa 1990s) to make 3 dresses! Matching scrunchie included when possible. Made locally in NYC by our legendary seamstress. This silhouette is pretty forgiving— go with your normal size, or try another for a tighter/looser look (if we're sold out or you need a custom piece, 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.
