I know that things have been a little quiet here on the blog in the last few months, life and my workshops have been keeping me ridiculously busy! But I’m excited to be bringing you a three-part series over the next couple of weeks- featuring dresses from one of my favourite UK vintage reproduction brands.
The Pretty Dress Company is a brand that never fails to produce classic designs while putting their own modern spin on things. I love that they always maintain a vintage aesthetic, while always creating a look that someone who isn’t particularly ‘into vintage’ could easily wear without feeling they are in a costume. Plus, I am always mega impressed by the fit and quality of their garments that are worth the higher price point.
The Pretty Dress Company previewed some of their new pieces at Viva Las Vegas which included the Dovima Cybele Dresses and Playsuits. The Cybele comes in three different styles – The Midi Dress, Pencil Dress and Playsuit with matching Overskirt.
The colours available are perfect for summer – a mix of beautiful brights like royal purple and crimson reds, and more soft pastels like this pale pink. Each style features a delicate gold trim along the neckline and around the hem of the skirt and I think the addition of the gold really makes these dresses more versatile for dressing up for night time!
The one shoulder feature is a real favourite of mine – this style was certainly around in the 40s and 50s, but there’s a definite lack of it in the reproduction market. So I for one, am glad to see it!
