50s Vintage Inspired Vera Sweet Heart Swing Dress by Cerys' Closet in Green

( 2 Reviews )

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.

 Cerys' Says.... 

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.

Lisha is our model in this pic, she is 5ft 10, and a size 18 with a 38E bust. Lisha is wearing a size 16 Vera. Check her out on insta @lishasolik

This dress has no zip, it's a simple pull on over the head dress.

The Vera Sweet Heart Size Guide

This size guide is approximate.

I have allowed for a 2 inch fabric stretch allowance so a size 8 would be 28 inches around the waist but with the stretch in the dress it will accommodate up to a 30 inch waist.

The dress length from waist to hem is 29 inches approx. Any questions regarding fit - please do not hesitate to contact me :) Cerys x

Best Dress I ever owned

Ever time I visit the shop I leave with another Vera dress! It's stretchy, comfortable and looks amazing with flats, heels or boots perfect little dress, this is my favourite style! I have 4 limited prints and 3 in block colours best dress ever! I'm a size 18/20 with big upper arm so normally struggle to get this style, super happy I finally have so much choice.

Lovely item

I was really torn between sizes and sized down to an 8 (for reference, my waist is 28 inches, bust 34 & height 5 ft 2.5). I think if I'd gone with my usual size, it would have been too big in the shoulders & the bust (it fit perfectly in both places). The waist fits in the right place, although the dress is a smidge on the long side (but not long enough to warrant hemming it) and it does cling a little bit to my stomach, but not in a way it would stop me from wearing it. I do have a qualm though, and that was that a little bit of the stitching in the waist had come loose, so I had to put a few stitches in. Overall, it's a lovely dress in a stretchy but heavy fabric. And has huge pockets
