Brand Embers / Cinders Vintage

Flutter sleeve chiffon dresses -- the stuff dreams are made of. What is it that is so romantic about the chiffon dresses of this era? Maybe it's the sleeves that flutter in the air as you gesture or turn, the full gypsy hemmed skirt that swirls and twirls as you walk? Whatever it is, this sweet number feels like a celebration of Spring.
In a pastel shade of green, the dress has a v-neck collar, complete with an underdress that is fitted and tailored through the bust. A ruched belt of chiffon is affixed at the true waist.
Layers of asymmetrical sheer chiffon are layered across the bust and shoulders, achieving a sheer cape-like effect.
The dress floats away from the body just below the waist, with full hips and a free, maxi length skirt. Another layer of chiffon is set over the skirt in a pointed gypsy hem effect. It is this layer of the skirt that is hand painted, with mirthful yellow flowers on wispy green stems.
Dress is partially lined, except for the sleeves, which are left sheer, with a center back nylon coil closure.
