This beautiful silk dress would make a stunning wedding dress for the bride who would like something a little different from the norm. It is made from a fabulous raw silk dupion in an ivory colour overlaid on the bodice with a delicate ivory lace. The silk has an organic texture with a very subtle sheen and the lace has an intricate twisting floral design which creates a very formal and glamorous effect for the dress.
The dress has a snugly fitted bodice with a delightful bustier neckline and a high-back. The fitted waistband is designed to flatter either a fuller or a slimmer figure and it is complemented by a generous full circle skirt and fitted wrist-length sleeves in a single layer of intricate lace.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE: We source this beautiful raw silk dupion and lace new rather than using vintage/reclaimed fabrics (like most of the rest of our dresses) so that we can ensure that we have the highest quality supply available to use for our brides-to-be. However, recently we have changed suppliers and we have sourced a new lace which we will be using for these dresses from now on. It is very similar to the lace used on the original dress in the main photos - it has a repeated twisting floral design in the same ivory colour with the same scalloped edges at the bottom of the sleeves but it is just a little more detailed and intricate. You can view the new lace in the additional photo.
*Please note* All dresses ordered will be made with the new lace, not the lace shown on the pre-made dress.
We also have white and champagne raw silk dupion available.
Alternatively, you can choose another vintage fabric from our collection and have a dress custom made.
This dress can be made to order in a range of standard sizes (UK 6-18) or tailor made to measure for an additional £25 (Or an additional £40 if the dress is required in a plus size).
Please consult our sizing chart and measurement info "here" before ordering.
The standard skirt length for this dress is 23" to 25" - kneelength on most people - but please put a note in the "Additional Information" box at the bottom of the page if you would like the skirt on your dress to be made slightly shorter or longer.
This dress will take approximately 2-4 weeks to make and 1-2 days to ship within the UK (or 1-2 weeks for international shipping, depending on location). However, if you would need the dress sooner than that please get in touch and we may be able to arrange an express order.
Designed, cut and sewn in Brighton, England.
Dig For Victory! is a sustainable fashion label in Brighton, England that creates limited edition and one-off pieces from vintage and "end-of-roll" fabrics. Our style is inspired by the vintage glamour of the 40's and 50's, but executed with a modern twist. Our dresses are made to the highest standard by our local team of talented seamstresses. Dig For Victory! celebrates the history of fashion to be found in a wealth of vintage textiles.
Our standard sized dresses (besides those in our 'ready to ship') are still individually made to order. We also use vintage and reclaimed fabrics which we have a limited supply of each. These two factors mean that we really encourage our customers to be as sure as possible before ordering the dress as we will be making it specially for you. This means considering the fabric and style combination as well as checking their measurements against our sizing information. However, if the dress is made in a standard size then it can be returned if it doesn't fit for an exchange or refund (MINUS postage costs), within 28 days of the dress being received. The made to measure dresses are made to fit your specific measurements and can be returned for adjustments. The fit of the dress will depend on the accuracy of your measurements and therefore it is sometimes the case that a made to measure dress will benefit from a little tweak/adjustment after it has been received. If this is the case, you may find it easiest to have this done by a local dressmaker but you are also very welcome to return the dress back to us for a free adjustment if you prefer.
