Meet Lucinda, she is an absolutely gorgeous and rare late 1960s deep crimson velvet dream dress by Simon Ellis. I LOVE the vampy charm on this one, with beautiful frill lace cuffs, lace detailing at her chest and beautiful velvet sash feature. Her cut is also adorable, with a shaped fitted bodice and empire waist, she is the perfect vampy treasure.. I hope she finds the best home..
This girl measures to approx UK size 4/6, does have a petite fit.
Bust - up to 33" - 34"
Empire Waist - 30"
Length - 51"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Lucinda has been freshly cleaned and is ready to wear. DRY CLEAN ONLY. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear. She has a few small marks to her lace and fabric, does not detract.
ALL vintage velvet comes with small signs of wear to the pile of the fabric. This is part of the charm.
This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear, but please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.
