The Amelie Dress - Steel Blue



Product Details

Red Dress Shoppe's best selling 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. 

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.

Our newest A-line Amelie Dress is made of gabardine - a tailoring fabric founded by Burberry Fashion house.  The dark teal blue fabric with textured grey contrasts is thick, durable yet soft, non-itchy, washable, and with nice stretch for fit and comfort.  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.
