1950s ADELE SIMPSON DRESS
Black Bouclé, fitted dress
1950s Adele Simpson
Metal zip at back with hook and eye fastening at nape
I think there was once a belt / detail on waist as there is a detail at the front of the dress that that would accommodate such ( see photos 5 & 6 )
some minor tears just in the lining at the back … see photo 7

Authentic clothing from 1900s – 1960s
A few words about ourselves and our store
We are Fiona and Joe, a couple whose love of all things Vintage came about through our passion for dancing, mainly Lindy Hop and various Swing dances.
The passion (some may say obsession!) developed into a love of 1930s and 1940s fashion and design.
We have always been eclectic in our tastes and wanted to share this affection with others .
We love sourcing unusual and interesting items, so now, as well as Vintage clothing, we also include collectibles, home ware and kitchen ware within our store.
We also offer hand-made reproduction clothing from authentic sources, all bespoke and respectful of the styles of the eras (you wouldn’t know the difference – but we will be sure to tell you!)
We have been trading for some years at Vintage fairs and weekend events and we are now able to share what we love doing online.
WE STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT VINTAGE FASHION SHOULD BE ACCESSIBLE TO ALL AND SHOULD BE FUN WITH NO RESTRICTIONS OR PRECONCEPTIONS
WEAR WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
** We want our clothing to be for everyone so whilst words such as ‘men’s jacket’ or ‘women’s shirt’ are used; this describes the cut of the clothing in that it is designed to fit a particular body shape but by no means describes who can wear it .
WE WELCOME EVERYBODY TO BUY ANY ITEM
VINTAGE STYLE NOT VINTAGE VALUES
