Lesley-Ann Dress in Black with Black Tulle

Availability: In stock

$260.00
Inspired by the timeless poise and striking beauty of actress Lesley-Ann Brandt, the Lesley-Ann Dress from Laura Byrnes California is the embodiment of grace and classic elegance. Suggestive of the exquisitely-made and highly treasured party dresses of the 1950s but with clean modern lines and refined detailing for today's woman, this dress is a marvel of construction.

The full charmeuse-lined skirt offers a stretch Meredith satin base in solid black with layer upon layer of black tulle overlaid on top with a satin waistband to accentuate its 50s-inspired silhouette. The top, to put it mildly, is breathtaking. Meticulously cut, pleated, and sewn into a herringbone-shaped design, the tulle overlay across the lined satin bust transitions into a straight-pleated back enhanced by a satin border on the top following the lines of the tulle. Sitting slightly off-shoulder and extending to the back zip to create a drop v-back, the tulle and satin cap sleeves complete this dream of a dress. Thanks to its careful construction and enduring design, this dress will last a lifetime and beyond if cared for properly!

Please note, this style is very delicate due to the tulle construction, so take care to not snag it on anything and absolutely do not iron it (light steaming is okay, and please dry clean only)! Treat this dress like a vintage tulle prom dress and store in a garment bag to preserve the integrity of this style.

I bought this in a 3X and it fits like a dream. Heavy and luxurious. It feels like a vintage gown. (Posted on 11/9/2016)

I bought this dress in XL at the summer 2015 Yardsale. It is not one to wear to the super market. It is something to wear when you want to look super glamorous. I wore it to the opera and I got so many amazing compliments. It was just a little tight to get the zip up, but once that was accomplished it felt comfortable all night. The tulle can be a little challenging to deal with. But all the effort is definitely worth the look. (Posted on 10/1/2015)

The tulle on this dress was amazing, however, the dress was very heavy. It was too tight on top and my chest was smashed.

I'm not sure I could handle so much material. Very pretty though.. (Posted on 6/5/2015)

This dress just feels like a party dress!!
I did measure my self before ordering. The medium should have given me sufficient room in the waist. I am an 8-10 normally in a blouse or a-line dress. This fits very tightly in the waist & bodice!! There is no room for eating at the buffet!!
That said, I feel very pretty in it. The length is good for a 5'3" gal.
I hope the tulle will uncurl some before I wear it .
It would be heavy to pack in a suitcase. (Posted on 3/9/2015)

This is such a stunning dress. I bought it in red and black. It is extremely well made with high quality materials(don't weght yourself with it on). I did have to return them, but only because I think it was both too young for me (43) and probably too 50's. I have a few vintage looking pieces, but my wardrobe is pretty contemporary. However, if you love this genre of clothing and it's how you typically dress, then you should definitely buy it. It's expensive, but would be worth every penny. I just couldn't pull it off. I can pull off a wiggle dress, but just not this. (Posted on 3/7/2015)
