Here is my upcycled Gatsby slip dress design . Originally ,it was a white lingerie slip that I turned into a sexy inspired by 1920s design dress! I handed dyed it into a darker pink tone color.That process offsets the front lace, sequence and beads with a darker mauve almost brown tone . I then added a hand dyed in similar tone ( mauve ) lace around the front chest area,bottom of the skirt and front bottom very feminine raffle .

I ,then ,embellished that ruffled area of the button ruffle with this gorgeous appliqué to make a focal point to create a 1920s design look. Then, I added a hand dyed cotton blend lace sash that thighs in a generous bow on the side . This dress have an adjustable straps and it is free style since it stretches some due to this design ., but it marked size medium , but it may be suitable for up to size large . The shawl that is on a picture doesn’t come with the dress , but can be purchased in my shop. Please double check your measurements below:
