Cathy mermaid - mandarin collar mermaid skirt


Size Guide

Be très chic, be elegant, be stylish in this sophisticated mermaid or swing 1950s inspired dress. When it comes to creating vintage clothing, we love to include a twist! The collar is crafted in a classic mandarin style, but we have added an exposed zipper and contrast color trim that winds seductively down the shoulder. Your waist is cinched in and the mermaid skirt flares elegantly and drops to below knee length. Go nautical in white with navy trims. Team up with a striped tote and white and navy sandals. Finish the look with a wide-brim sun hat. You are ready for a sail into the sunset.

As always, we can adapt this style to a pencil-shape and can also make the sleeves long.
