Stunning vintage Monsoon Twilight berry red velvet cocktail dress with a draped portrait neckline and a deep V back with attached statement bow.
Stunning vintage Monsoon Twilight berry red velvet cocktail dress with a draped portrait neckline and a deep V back with attached statement bow. Mid length fit and flare shape with soft boning to the bodice, part lined with a side zip fastening. A truly gorgeous dress, perfect for the festive season.
NOTE: The back bow is quite heavy and may benefit from a couple of stitches to secure the top. The lining is also a bit fragile at the back bodice, none of which detracts from wearability. Proced accordingly.

Customers are asked to bear in mind that vintage garment sizes bear little or no resemblance to contemporary sizes. Furthermore, current high street size labels are inconsistent, with M&S and Wallis being noted for their generous proportions while others come up on the small side.
Please always refer to the measurements provided in the item description rather than the garment label size, and note that any ‘best fit’ suggestion we make will be based on modern day sizing. By way of example, our own suggested standard size 12 dress has an underarm to underarm measurement of approximately 19" with a waist size of 30".
In order to best gauge the suitability of an item, you may find it useful to compare our stated measurements with those of one of your own garments which is a comfortable fit. Our garment measurements are taken with the item laid flat, and all sizes in our descriptions are approximate.
The following charts give approximate comparative UK/US/European sizes for women’s clothing and shoes.
