Bonjour! Time for a croissant and a Latte Macchiato in Paris, 1953.
Step into the past with this exquisite dress, meticulously designed to transport you to the glamour of the 1950s. Made from the finest dotted Chiffon fabric* in shades of Vintage White & Tan, this dress boasts an ethereal quality that drapes beautifully and moves gracefully with every step you take.
The classic silhouette of the 1950s is artfully recreated in this dress, with a cinched waist, high oval neckline and a wide gathered skirt that accentuates your feminine curves. The charming polka dot pattern adds a touch of playfulness to the overall sophistication.
As a true nod to the era’s style, this dress comes complete with a matching shawl. Whether you drape it delicately over your shoulders or wear it as an elegant accessory, the shawl adds an extra layer of refinement to your ensemble.
The dress is fully lined in breathable, antistatic Rayon. Back, lapped metal zipper. Hand-stitched facings and details all over. Wide hem to add a beautiful, heavy drape and authentic feature from the past. Bra strap stays at the shoulder seam keep your bra invisible and in place at all times.
Mid-calf length or custom (Free of charge 0,-CHF. Please choose from drop down navigation).
Dress shown with a petticoat underneath (not included).
Here paired with vintage hats & jewelry, floral accessories and the Pearl Necklace 1956

Prettie Lanes is not making any use of Polyester fibers for it’s day wear line since 2018. This fabric however was sourced in 2017 and carefully stored in the archives ever since. Gradually destocking the fabric archives had left two major options - using up the fabric or letting it go to waste. Avoiding waste is essential in the fashion industry and that is why Prettie Lanes decided to use the fabric and turn it into something beautiful even though it may not fully cover todays sourcing policies of this company. The fabric itself is in perfect condition.
