Early 1970’s A-line houndstooth check dress

Combining the flattering and youthful A-line cut with the ever-popular houndstooth check pattern, this fully-lined dress is a made of a wool blend and can be worn in winter, despite its mid-thigh/above the knee length.  Contrasting red and brass-tone accents give the whole dress a vaguely military efficiency, but it’s clearly of that period where it would have been worn with or without pantyhose or tights and with thick-heeled shoes, possibly with a high tongue. A-line cut is flattering on a variety of figure types while being comfortable.  Click here for more views and information.

 

1960’s hot pink velvet dress

Elegant and emphatically hot pink, this carefully home-sewn dress will have you and everyone else seeing in Velvet-Vision.  Short sleeves and boat neckline with Peter Pan-style collar, bodice fitted with darts, all come together to make a swingy, kicky party dress with a slight flare.  We’d be lying if we didn’t say it had a little bit of both Joan and Peggy from Mad Men.  As they say on the show, “A thing like that!”  Click here for more views and sizing information.
