Black & Red Cherry Scoop Neck Bow Tie Vintage Swing Dress|
This product is sold out
Bold, frivolous and smothered in luscious, red juicy cherries, this little number makes the perfect picnic-in-the-countryside outfit. Tiny green leaves and white polka dots on the black background add a dramatic finish.
In classic rockabilly vintage style, the design offers a full swing skirt that flares gently outwards and drops to just below the knee. The sleeveless silhouette features a scooped neckline at the back and front, tied off with an adorable little red bow. Matching red piping outlines the neck and arm holes.
Accentuate your waistline with the thin red belt, wear bold red buckle-up sandals and slip your satin-finish rouge lipstick into the pocket.

This is a gorgeous dress - very flattering cut, and the pockets add style and pizzaz. It drew a couple of compliments on its first outing! The red ribbon highlighting around the neck and sleeves adds freshness and charm. I did wonder if it's slightly too long for me, especially as the skirt is very voluminous - I'm about 5'4" so it does sit a few inches below the knee, but this length is fine with heels. If I was to wear it with flats I would probably get it taken up to just skim the knee. I ordered the belt to go with it but it doesn't look as good as in the picture, especially as the belt is very long and has nothing to secure the extra length around the back. But the dress actually looks lovely without a belt, especially when worn with feature shoes such as the ones in my pictures! My only slight discontent was that there was a piece of unsecured material under the keyhole neck, which tended to flap up into sight when I first tried the dress on, but it was easy to stitch down. Also, the ribbon at the keyhole is quite chunky so it can be hard to get the bow to sit just so, especially if it has a kink in it, but this is also relatively easy to deal with and definitely worth a moment's perseverence!
Customer service was so helpful when the package got lost and got my stuff promptly even after that hiccup. Love the dresses and the way they fit
Love this dress. Looks exactly like the picture and fits well.
