I pride myself on creating dresses that are bold, feminine and comfortable, intended to flatter your figure, uplift your mood and boost your confidence! I’m lucky to do what I do for a living and this design is named in honour of Coco Chanel - a style pioneer who liberated us from corsets and introduced feminist thinking and freedoms to fashion.
Made from a stunning and unique vintage fabric in mint condition, each dress is individually hand cut to get the placement of every swan and the colour graduation just so. Lots of time and love has gone into it's creation and we hope it brings you much joy to wear!
A classic yet modern design that is neatly fitted to the body, yet still allows room to move. The pleated skirt starts at just the right point on the waist to highlight the the smallest part of the body, then drapes perfectly over the tummy area, falling just on the knee, a length that suits most women. Cap sleeves, gently scooped neck, zipper back, pockets hidden in the side seams.
Please note that print placement varies with these dresses, just get in touch via email if you have any questions before ordering.
100% cotton. Vintage fabric in mint condition. One of a kind/limited edition. Handmade partly in my studio along with a small sewing business in Sydney's inner west. Handwash or machine wash on delicates cycle only, inside a wash bag, using phosphate free detergent.
SIZING & MEASUREMENTS
Well proportioned and works on smaller bodyshapes as well as more voluptuous figures, the bodice being slightly fuller in the bust. If you are petite up top but have a bigger bottom, select your size according to your top size as the skirt has enough flow to allow for varied hip width.
Similar sizing to the Liesl and Nina Dresses.
Model with fair hair shown is average height, has a shorter torso and longer legs, wearing 10-12. Model with dark hair in the pink version is a 12-14, average height with larger bust.
