Pre-order. Shipping October 2021.
For this fall I wanted to make the dress I’ve always missed having. Elisabeth is inspired by the late 1930s to early 1940s. She features short gathered puff sleeves with a cuff and ruffles. The bodice is relaxed and has a round collar with ruffles. The dress closes with a row of 1940s dead stock buttons (as long as my stock lasts, then I will source other matching buttons). The skirt is gathered with a self tie belt that could be tied in front or back. Dress closes with a concealed side zipper.
This garment is made to order. The production time is 6-8 weeks. Elisabeth is made in an exclusive light weight rayon crêpe from Italy. This beautiful fabric is the highest quality and will last you a life time if taken care of.
