The thing I love above all other with vintage clothing, is how well it is cut. These days we are so used to the cheap 'n' cheerful , throwaway fashion of New Look, Peacocks, Primark and the like, that we don't really recognise well-cut clothes anymore: this is an outfit that looks like nothing much on the hanger, but really shows off the curves while minimising the bulges once you've got it on.
This dress and jacket are designed for everyday, that is, for work. The outfit is sober in colour, and unimaginative in style, but if you've got the figure to fill it, you'll get second looks (though obviously not wolf whistles, that would be harrassment) all the way to the photocopier!
The dress has elbow-length sleeves which emaphasise your wrists, one of the most sexy parts of any woman's body (my boyfriend goes wild if I wear gloves to bed for the same reason, but we won't go into that now...). It's cut just above the knee, so shows off your legs, and shapes gently inwards from the hips, giving you that 'wiggle' factor.
It's too big for me (size 10) so the photos really don't do it justice - a friend suggested I put bags of sugar in my bra and knickers, but really, that's just too kinky even for me - but if you're a size 14-16, I guarantee you'll look BRILLIANT!
The fabric is textured, black with dark green roses, slightly stretchy and very comfy. The jacket is boxy and collarless, fastens with a little chain from fancy buttons and has bracelet-length sleeves. It is in perfect condition - no marks or tears - and no one else will ever have one like it.
Thre are no labels, as it is hand made. Approximate measurements of the dress are: bust 40 ins/101 cms; waist 34 ins/86 cms; hips 40 ins/101 cms. I'm guessing that best fit would be a modern UK size 14/16, but there is stretch in the fabric so you may know better than me!
