Dress: Cast Couture
Necklace: Foudre Blanche
This “Frill Bust Dress” from Etsy seller Cast Couture is so comfortable as to be practically criminal! And to add to the vaguely too-good-to-be-true aspect of it all, designer Catherine Stoneley not only didn’t charge extra to make it to my measurements, but she managed to make it in less than a week! I ordered it on the 22nd of April, and I received it yesterday. That’s nine days, including international shipping from New Zealand! I can only imagine that Cat has one of those time-turner devices like Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series, because I can’t see how else she manages to turn-over orders with such speed without sacrificing her great quality and production values.
These pictures really don’t do justice to the finished product – it’s an innovative cut that lends me a really elegant shape and the frill on the neckline is both classy and fun. The dress is made out of a very wearable cotton elastane – almost like a dense stretchy t-shirt material. It’ll be a great multi-seasonal dress . And there’s pockets! I love pockets!
Get in quick though, because I spotted Cast Couture on the front page on Etsy and I imagine she’s about to become very very busy.
