Meet Medusa, she is an incredible and rare 1970s green witchy dream dress by Donerica of Mayfair, crafted from what I believe is delicate and dreamy silk chiffon with lining and cotton velvet bodice. She has an unbelievable silhouette with delicate drapey sleeves, layered skirt, unusual neckline and bow feature at her waist, and she is a very fine example of 70s design. Her colour is divine, and truthfully it is hard to capture it on a photograph. This is an incredible piece, a true treasure and a dress of a lifetime, I just know she will look absolutely epic when worn.
This girl measures to approx UK size 10 small 12
Bust - up to 37"
Waist - 31.5" does sit high
Length - 57"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Medusa 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. A small nick to her skirt, see photo, this is tiny and 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.
