Black Jacquard Red Satin Vintage Inspired Dress

Ok no matter how frugal we are, we’re allowed moments of being pretty and missing a dress here and there!

I had to get rid of this dress a while back and something just made me think of it – ah it was so nice! It was a swing style dress and as a petite person it was very long on me but I didn’t feel the need to try and alter it as I think it looked fine. So there to all ye doubters and disbelievers of petite folk not being able to wear maxi or tea length dresses/skirts! I’ve always worn maxi and below the knee lengths and they always look fine, if necessary just alter things to your proportions and it’s a-ok.

This dress was made of jacquard and I love jacquard (and embroidered fabrics) – it could have done with lining but it wasn’t a big loss. The satin trim made it very feminine. *Sigh* Oh the velvet capelet coat I’m wearing there is gone too. Damn.

Anyway, I posted about it before HERE (November 9, 2012) but I just found some pics I had of it and (edited out the background of the indoor ones) in a moment of nostalgia here they are:

It was a couture prototype from HERE.
