50s Vintage Inspired Vera Sweet Heart Swing Dress by Cerys' Closet in Blue
A brand new, super exciting chapter has started here at Cerys' Closet.
I have taken the leap and started manufacturing my own label! The dresses are designed by me (Cerys) and manufactured in the UK.
This is the first design to be added to the closet and is named in loving memory of the wonderful Dame Vera Lynn.
Our model is the gorgeous @MissAmyMay - check her out on instagram! AND HER BLOG POST ON THE VERA HERE
A stunning sweetheart neckline with a classic fitted bodice and flowing down into a full circle skirt that can be worn with or without a petticoat for that retro pin up look.
This dress is made from a beautiful jersey stretch material that allows lots of movement and doesn't restrict you.
Double lined in the front for hold and smoothing and sits on the shoulders beautifully so you can wear a supportive bra if you have a larger bust.
Obviously IT HAS POCKETS as it is my aim in life to have pockets in everything lol.
This dress is a generous fit, I REALLY MEAN THAT! I am a size 18/20 and in a 16! I would recommend sizing down one size.
There is no zip in this dress, it pulls straight over the head.
Miss Amy May Said....
I could have sized into the 16 if I wanted a tight pinup fit, but the 18 works well for me for fitting me properly with some element of skimming and leftover stretch still preserved, just the way I like. For reference my size 18 measures 36 inches flat in the waist with stretch to 46 inches, while the bust flat measures 40 inches with stretch to 47 inches. The sleeves are 16 inches flat across the bicep and have stretch up to 21 inches, while the skirt is 28 inches long.
