Swan Liesl Dress Pastel Pink Size 8-10 *SECOND*
Please note: this garment is a "second" After finishing the dress I noticed a tiny nick in the fabric and have repaired it with iron on fusing, machine stitching and purl thread on top to disguise it. Please see the close up in 4th photo. It does not affect the use or overall look of the dress and the rest of the fabric, although vintage, is in as-new condition, but I have reduced the price accordingly.
The Liesl Dress is my take on a classic 50's sundress shape.
It is neatly fitted to the body with a gathered skirt that starts at just the right point on the waist for a timeless feminine look.
Cap sleeves, gently scooped neck, with a full skirt falling just over the knees is flattering on the hips and legs. Plus there are pockets hidden in the side seams!
The design is well proportioned and works on petite body shapes as well as more voluptuous figures.
One of a kind. Vintage fabric in mint condition.
80% cotton 20% with a smooth business shirt weight and feel.
Handmade in Sydney, Australia.
Handwash, mild phosphate free detergent preferable.
Sizing and fit is average to generous. If you prefer a loose look or have a larger bust, you may prefer to go up a size but in general stick with the size you'd normally go for.
The measurements below are taken by laying the garment flat – just measure a dress of your own that fits well and compare. Hip measurements are not included as they suit all sized and shaped bottoms!
