Dolly Couture Manhattan

Label Size: 12 Street Size: 12

I was looking for something simple and kind of vintage-y and fun, and this dress really fit the bill. I love it, and I hope it finds a good home with you!

The dress has a sweetheart neckline in the front and a v shape in the back, which is significantly more flattering than straight across (it decreases the dreaded but inevitable back roll caused by all strapless dresses). In the long run I decided I would not be comfortable all night with a strapless dress, so I had a detachable halter strap made. Unfortunately i can’t find the halter strap anymore, BUT, you can easily have one made. If you are interested, I am happy to send you antique lace similar to the kind I covered my halter strap with so you can have a similar look. The back has a zipper and a short row of buttons. The skirt length is a standard 27″ from natural waist to hem.

The petticoat features layers of dusty rose tulle, which makes for a happy surprise when you twirl, which of course you will be, a lot. Twirling is super fun in this dress!
Please feel free to email me with any questions or if you’d like to see more pictures. Also, I’m willing to negotiate.

  • Alterations: The original Manhattan is designed to be a straight strapless dress, but I had a Sweetheart neckline added and a shallow v shape in the back. I had the bodice shortened by half an inch. The original Manhattan comes with a sash but I decided not to get one. I imagine you could easily have a matching one or the halter strap made at www.dollycouture.com.
