VV Size Dorothy

Stunning black evening shirt dress in a rayon acetate mix with woven pink swiss dot. Square lucite black buttons with large rhinestone in the centre. Turn up hostess sleeve. Perfect for a dinner party or formal occasion.


There are no store or brand labels and this dress appears to have been made to measure to a high standard so it was likely made by a professional seamstress or atelier. One of the rhinestone button centres has been replaced, the remainder of the rhinestones are original. There are a couple of small holes on the right shoulder and under the right arm. These could be masked by patching with a plain black acetate from the inside of the dress and is reflected in the price. Because of that we would rate this dress as good condition and looks to have been rarely worn.


All vintage clothing measurements are taken with the garment lying flat and doubled. These are then used against our unique sizing system to determine size. We would strongly recommend measuring a garment that currently fits you well and compare, because often there is very little give in vintage fabrics.
