This floor length Dolce and Gabbana vintage maxi dress is quite a find. It’s ‘proper’ vintage and is likely to date from the 90s’. That’s my best guess. It’s come to Edinburgh from Rome. It’s a size IT 46 / UK 14.
The design and condition of the dress make it very wearable!
What you get is beautiful shaping throughout the length of the dress. Very figure flattering. There is careful seaming to the bust and at the rear extensive ruching throughout the length of the dress. There is also a deep pleat at the rear for ease of movement. It’s slightly too big for my mannequin but I think you can still see the shaping.
From shoulder seam to shoulder seam it measures 16″ and the length measured from the centre of the back is 51″. The dress is unlined and the fabric is 75% viscose, 17% polyamide and 8% elastane. There is a rear, mostly concealed zip (its concealed except for at the very top of the dress) and a hook and eye fastening. Made in Italy.
If you ask me what kind of red it is I would say, slightly cold rather than being a ‘true’ red but you may disagree. It’s slightly creased at the bottom. My fault. Find out more.
