Measuring Tips to Assure The Best Fit

Bust

With arms at sides, place tape measure under your arms and run it around the fullest part of the bustline and across the shoulder blades.

Waist

Find the natural crease of your waist by bending to one side. Run tape measure around your natural waistline, keeping one finger between the tape and your body for a comfortable fit.

Hips

With feet together, run tape measure around the fullest part of your hips/seat, about 7 to 8 inches below your waistline.

Inseam

For full-length pants, run tape measure along the inside of your leg, from just below the crotch to about 1 inch below the ankle.

As we are an independent and only produce small quantities our sizes vary slightly from style to style.

All garments have been carefully measured, therefore to ensure the very best fit, we suggest taking your own body measurements, whilst wearing light-weight clothing/ underwear and standing up straight, and compare these to our size chart.

Limited Edition. Designed & manufactured in the UK.

This dress is a generous fit due to the high stretch content. Please refer to our ‘Fit advice’ below and our size guide above to ensure you choose the correct size. Wear with our body shaper to draw you in at the waist and create a perfect hourglass figure.

Introducing the Ava Gardner, a stunning evening dress that effortlessly captures the essence of classic 1950s Hollywood glamour. This dress is a homage to the timeless elegance of the silver screen goddesses, and is designed to make you feel like a starlet stepping onto the red carpet. She is meticulously crafted from stretch velvet, a fabric that not only glows with an understated sheen but also gracefully contours to your figure. This material, rich and indulgent, has an exquisite feel against the skin, ensuring both comfort and style.

The dress presents a striking silhouette: long and lean, hugging the body while flowing all the way down to the floor (or just above depending on the size of your heels). The bodice is corseted creating the impression of an hourglass figure, while the long pencil skirt section with a tasteful right-hand split, allows for ease of movement and adds a hint of allure. A noteworthy feature of the Ava Gardner is the statement side knot, a masterful touch that gathers the fabric in with impeccable elegance. This detail not only adds visual interest, but also enhances the drape of the velvet, creating beautiful flow and movement.

This dress is fully lined, ensuring a seamless fit and finish. The long sleeves, complete with mini padded shoulders, add a touch of vintage sophistication, while also balancing the form-fitting design.  Due to the unique nature of the stretch velvet, the Ava Gardner dress requires a bit of finesse to wear. Once fitted into the dress, you’ll need to gently pull it down to smooth the fabric and achieve the perfect fit.
