Vintage Handmade Dresses (Each)

Going on the fact that these two dresses are completely hand stitched, and that they’re have a similar pattern, with both having studs running across the chest (in the style of a classic Chinese dress), I think it’s safe to assume that they were made by the same hand, and for the same wearer. At a guess I’d say that the dresses are a size 32/34, but with ample room around the hips – either because of the age of the dresses, which must date to the 1950s (latest), or because of the shape of the lady who wore them, there’s a lovely voluptuousness to these dresses!

Sadly there is some wear to the gold-toned floral lace dress – the fabric’s quite worn around the neck of the dress (where the tag would traditionally be). It’s still intact though (by a thread!) and the damage probably isn’t super noticeable once you’re wearing it. The sleeveless dress is in better nick, but some of the studs are quite worn and also a bit loose, although I’m sure they could be restitched. At the end of the day though, these are proper vintage dresses, so there’s bound to be some signs of age. On the plus side though, I think they’re completely wearable, and will be quite striking on. Especially that lace number – you’ll definitely turn a few heads in that!
