This dress is not cotton but I think acetate? It has got a silky blend to it and I think quite durable to love a trip around the world.
Here is how it works...
We will start off in the USA. The dress will be sent to me at the end of the USA rounds than I will mail overseas and the dress will make its way to whomever wants to participate. The requirements are:
1. You must make your photographs within two weeks of receipt of dress, if you are unable to do so, you will post on to the next participant. You will pay for postage to the next participant. If you should happen to spill something on the dress, please clean before moving forward.
2. You will create a blog post about your experience. You may even want to highlight something special about where you live but not necessary.
3. Last person overseas, will mail back to me the dress.
4. Also on Instagram at #sisterhoodofthevintagedress
I'll keep the option to join in open for a couple of weeks than we will have a timetable set up so we can keep track of the progress. Please leave a comment below by July 25th, if you'd like to join in. Participation will be closed after this.
I'd love to see how you all accessorize this dress or where you might like to wear it. This dress is speaking loudly to go on a vacation.
This dress is a little special because I believe it might fit a multitude of users. If you are smaller you can use a belt. It also has a lot of space in the bust area. I haven't worn this dress in a long time and look forward to trying it out again.
I believe this to be a late 1940s handmade dress and made very well!
It is quite roomy in the torso and bust area. I'm thinking bust area could go as high as 40". So there is a lot of flexibility in the bust area. The waist is 29" and could certainly go smaller, you may even try at a little higher. Also length from shoulder to end of dress is 48" Side metal zipper.
I am a 33 bust and with a belt it does work for me. I think you'll find this is an interesting dress and does remind me of a dress that would fit many types of ladies. Also, if you get it and aren't really happy with it, feel free to forward on and not worry about posting. We should all feel grand in this dress:)
Go ahead and join in on "Sisterhood of The Vintage Dress" Open and welcome to international participants.
UPDATE: At the end we will have a drawing for this dress so whoever participates and really loves it can have the opportunity to own it. You may even decide to make adjustments to the dress to get it where you like, if you win the dress.
Also, please provide suggestions on how we might add a signature or? to show its destinations. Something under the hem?
