Meet Potion, she is an incredible and unusual late 60s mythical dream dress by Edward Black, beautifully crafted in velvet with a grosgrain style fabric bodice and stunning organza embroidered sleeves with velvet cuffs. She has a squared off neckline with empire waist and full length skirt, and is filled with unique beauty. I absolutely love this one, she is so unusual and those embroidered sleeves are everything. I can't wait to see her loved once again...
This girl measures to approx UK size 10/12
Bust - up to 38"
Empire Waist - 32"
Length - 55.5"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Potion 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 light marks to her bodice, these were hard to capture but they are minor and do 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.
