The Amelie Dress - Olive Green
Red Dress Shoppe's newest design from our signature line! The Amelie Dress pays homage to vintage 1950's French fashion. French couture designer Christian Dior's fashion designs dominated the 1950s and created a history in the glamour world. During the early part of World War II, he served in the French army and then worked for two different design houses during the German occupation of Paris.
In his 1955 Spring collection, the French designer first showed his "A-lines", which described any dress fitted in the bodice, nipped at the waist, and wider at the hips. The A-Line collection featured what became the "most wanted silhouette in Paris". This silhouette would become a classic all-flattering shape in1950s fashion garments.
During this era in fashion, details of trimmings and buttons were not spared and the raw materials of Scottish tweeds and English worsted suit materials were renowned as being of exceptional quality. The wools were also used by the French and the British did everything they could to promote the fine materials with fine designs.
Our A-line Amelie Dress is made of a wool and acrylic blend, making the fabric durable yet soft, non-itchy, washable, and with nice stretch for fit and comfort. Available in two World War II inspired colors, a cadet grey and olive. The bodice is nicely tailored with the fittings and trims we love about vintage; a rounded collar, a faux bow tie, a keyhole opening, and an adorable button detail. The skirt is a perfect A-line for the most flattering fit on all body shapes! Zips up the back.
