If you love the timeless silhouettes of the Fifties and Sixties, then you should consider the Alfred Sung D682 bridesmaid dress. Fashion designer Alfred Sung’s use of crisp, lustrous fabrics, and classic shapes, takes us right back to when times were simpler. You would not look out of place in this dress drinking a vanilla Coke at the local drive-in, in a convertible.
Vintage is the rage, even for your bridesmaids, who never lived in the in the times of hula-hoops, teased hair and surf music! Vintage styles connects you to a favorite song or reminds you of loved ones, therefore the fashion sets the mood. There are several dresses that feature this type of design, but the D682 really does it best.
This dress would be a posh addition to any wedding ceremony. It feels a bit eclectic, and a little bit whimsical all at the same time. This trendy, A-line ensemble captures a hint of vintage inspired charm. No worry about going “true vintage” (finding the right color, imperfections, and odors). The short, above-the-knee length is a little less formal and a lot more fun for enjoying the reception.
The bateau neckline stretches from shoulder to shoulder, cutting just above the collarbone. The sleeveless bodice, with wide-set straps, wrap around to a generally open back. An inset waistband is fitted over the bodice with a thin seam line at the empire waist. Princess seams flatter with curved lines along the side of the bodice.
Put a Bow It!
The front of this style offers sleek, structured simplicity, and the reverse gets even more festive. It features a square back and a large bow at the waist to wrap it up nice and pretty. The skirt adds body to the hemline with an inverted kick pleat at the center. Hidden pockets on the seams are an added bonus!
The Alfred Sung D682 is made of Peau De Soie fabric. It has a slight luster and is texturized in the form of a fine horizontal weave. Its heavier weight helps the skirt to hold its stand-out shape. Over thirty colors are available including a range of pink and blush tints, light and dark blue, green, gray, and even black and white. Fabric swatches are offered for a small fee to help you get a better sense of the color and match your accessories accordingly.
Make It Your Own
So versatile is this dress, you don’t even have to settle for the above-the-knee hem. You can choose to purchase this with a tea-length or a long skirt. The dress is completely adjustable with extra length available in five inch increments. Need matching shawls or accessories? You can purchase extra Peau De Soie material to match your dress. Cut a length of it into a shoulder wrap and have your local seamstress sew up the edges. Extra fabric also makes a great table cloth or table runner that will be a perfect match.
