The Grace dress is the epitome of vintage using a unique flocking technique exclusive to us. This dress features an overlay panel on the waist and front straps to add a shelf to the gathered bust. The upper body of the dress is also lined in stretch poplin to add structure and support to the design. This dress would not be complete without the gathered, pleated full skirt that sits perfectly on any frame. Flocking is a unique and delicate technique that was made popular in the 40s and 50s. With this said we must stress the importance of following the care instructions. Hand wash only, best after several wears, and/or spot hand wash wear needed. Cold water and gentle detergent is best. Hang dry and steam wrinkles as needed on the backside of the fabric where there is no flocking.
