This is a first run in the Pretty puffs, so there aren't many sizes in stock, more sizes will follow!
Oh she’s a love, our Paulette dress! She came to us first as an original vintage dress just begging to be spread like love into the world! She has all the credentials of a war era dress, but we think she could lend herself very well to late 30s in style too.
We took Paulette and introduced her to Mary, so the fit is just like our bestseller Mary dress.
Paulette has the most awesome ruffle details that drift from the outside of one shoulder, across to the neck, all the way around and out the other side – quite enchanting! She offers that “big shoulder” look of war time but with a much softened flirtatious mood.
With a minty fresh background these floaty looking flowers look ready to make your wish come true. They look a bit like a dandelion puff and a bit like thistle florets. They also look a bit coral and a bit raspberry at the same tome... Or orange.
But definitely pretty, delicate, and easy to wear.
This colourway is polyester, and you might need to be careful with what jewellery you wear. It will need a little iron after washing to settle the ruffles down.
Now for the best bit, we’ve updated her with pockets slipped in with the vintage styling of the skirt. Ohh we need more pockets in our lives.
Details to note:
You could get a belt made using your tie belt as it should give you enough fabric once unpicked. Check out www.harlequin-uk.com. We recommend playing around with a belt of your own to know what suits you but bear in mind that narrow belts tended to rule this era (we prefer a 2cm width). You could even send them a vintage buckle to use!
We have a 5 year old Mademoiselle in the studio in charge of naming our dresses now. (Watch out for what is coming next)
