Please help me find a fifties style black lace dress like this...
DD1 loves this dress. After obsessive googling I found it was made by a company called Chotronette They no longer make the dress, there are similar-ish ones, not one that she loves as much. It's a fairly classic style, so I wondered if anyone had spotted something like this on their internet trawls Budget up to £150 I think. Thanks!
You could get one made as long as you can source a lace that you like (or probably the dressmaker would be able to get one). Check on Etsy or find a local seamstress. £150 is reasonable as long as the fabric isn't too pricy - I had a bridesmaid dress made in a similarish style (but with lace sleeves also) for about that price.
The original designers started remaking it, so I've ordered it and hopefully it should arrive by mid June. Dd very excited (not as much as me though ) and I think it will be great for balls etc when she goes to Uni (grades permitting) in the autumn <crosses fingers and touches wood>
This dress arrived today and I am genuinely staggered by the quality of it, fabric, finish everything. They made it to measure, it cost somewhere £120 delivered and it is just perfect. Really, really recommend these designers lots of very girly, flirty stuff and short bridal/bridesmaid dresses, please excuse the gushing just very pleased and relieved!
