a vintage vogue - 1950s pencil dress with pearls


Size Guide

Do you love being the center of attention when you sashay into a room? Darlings, you need this stunner now! Nothing shows your unique style better than old vintage Hollywood glam. Outdo those off-the-rack designs with a custom-made retro 1950s inspired ensemble.

This exquisite dress is cut in a form-hugging pencil shape. It has a darted bodice that enhances your curves and a sewn-in belt that slims your waistline. Nestling on your hip are two triangular pocket flaps each decorated with a sparkling pearl button. A lovely V-neckline and 3/4 sleeves complete the look.

A sensational design calls for a sensational color - and purple is it! Our model wears our unique purple 44 – it is not on our swatches, so please ask me for ‘color like model’.

Dress is unlined, for lining please buy HERE


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

Love it!

I literally just got the dress in the mail, and decided to sit down and write this review. It is so well made!! Looks just like the picture. The only thing I didn't realize from the picture that there is only one set of pockets, if I had noticed I would have requested to have 2 sets. But that is just a matter of preference, and I should have paid more attention to the pictures. The Color is beautiful! I got it just like the picture.

The material is very cool, perfect for our hot summers! It looks so classy and the fit... let me talk about the fit. I requested a custom dress, and it did not dissapoint. I appreciated all the responses to my questions in regards to sizing and such. I even appreciated Cindy reaching back out to me when she had questions just to make sure that what I wanted. I love the clean seams on the inside as well. I give this dress a 10 and will definitley buy more. Side note I did buy 2 other dresses from Heart My Closet. They will each have their own review, but I loved all of them .
