Our twizzle has had a make over, and ohh she’s a sophisticated beauty now. Firstly, as you can see, she has a swish and sway like never before. That’s a detachable swag! It’s like a short skirt you can wear on top. It does up with a secret hidden button and has a cleverly elasticised waist that won’t tell that you are spending your day in delicious comfort of an easy-going fit. The skirt part has a swash attached to it, like you’ve fabulously, cleverly, knotted your garment in true starlet style.
Secondly, we’ve done a bit of foundation work too – she’s had a lift! Well…we found the waist would hit slightly low, right on the line where ones tummy likes to show… so we’ve lifted the waist by 1.5”. We lengthened the skirt by the same amount and that adds a little more swish too. Lastly, her neckline, while gorgeous, had sort of slipped down over the years and no longer looked really 40s, so we brought that up a little to be more period correct. (Hint: If you want to show more cleavage you could amend that yourself as it’s just a simple seam)
If you haven’t met our Twizzle already, she is our stealth bombshell dress. She has all the look of a vintage dress that we can pack in, but we make her in easy care, easy wear, stretch jersey fabrics. She’s like going out with your best most loveliest friend - one that skims over your bumpy bits and doesn’t mind if you only pick her up at the last minute.
This fabric is a delightful medium weight drapey jersey fabric with good stretch. If you are between sizes you could order down, but otherwise we’ve sized it to fit your normal size.
The background is a lovely teal, with flowers in colours of peach, blush pink, marsala, ivory and tawny brown, with leaves in moss, khaki and bottle green. There are small outlines in a dark colour that could lend itself to black (I think it’s actually green).
Accessorising should be easy with any of your brown tones from beige to chocolate. Taupe looks surprisingly elegant! Navy is good too, as is Ivory. I think greens will be ok but they might look a little off against the teal if you use too much of them. But twany pinks could steal the show with this print – especially where that nearly terracotta shade meets rusty red. Even just a drop of pink in an earring or hair accessory would really be peachy (hee hee). The right shade of ruby or garnet red shoes would be gorgeous.
