VELVET Pleated front dress - 1940s 1950s vintage wiggle dress


Size Guide

  • Boat neckline
  • Drapes and pleats at the front
  • Pencil shade skirt
  • velvet available in : dark red, bright red, royal blue, navy, white, black, dark purple, yellow, emerald green

This look is a sensational combination offering femininity and structure, oozing sexiness while being conservative! Inspired by the popular TV show, we are lovin’ this  vintage ensemble.

It features a classic boatneck and elbow-length sleeves that frame and draw attention to the bodice. We have a stunning wide, cross-over drape with side pleats that nestles just above your waist. Two decorative buttons add a dash of flair. The skirt falls straight in a slimming pencil shape and gives you just the right amount of wriggle when walking


Besides some special fabrics like lace and tweed, most of our dresses are made in twill cotton blend (65 cotton 30 polyester and 5 spandex).


Measuring instructions & color selection will be sent after you purchase. Size over 14 we recommend custom made

Fantastic Quality and Superb Service!

I can't wait to order from this company again! This was such a wonderful process. This was my first time ordering custom and they were very clear with instructions and so helpful. The timing was so prompt! The dress is such fantastic quality! I am so impressed with the stitching and fabric. This will be my go to for vintage from now on.

I bought this dress for my daughter's Christmas wedding! It fit me to a T. Everything about it was perfect...the few wrinkles in the velvet came out just from the dress hanging for 2 weeks, although Cindy said I could use a steamer if need be. It was a wonderful choice for mother of the bride, and the custom measurements were spot on. For reference, I am short at 5' 1", and weigh about 145lbs. I have a large bust. The 3/4 length sleeves looked wonderful and kept me warm for a winter wedding. The belt/adornment at the waist helped hide my tummy. Quality is impeccable. I received many compliments!
