Swing Time Ginger Rogers dress

This 1940s taffeta swing dress has me drooling. Isn't it absolutely gorgeous? I love the Peter Pan collar that sparkles with rhinestone, the full skirt and the puffy sleeves. This darling number reminds me of the dress that Ginger Rogers wore in Swing Time (1936), which is one of my dream dresses. Unfortunately, it is too small for me (bust 35-37", waist 26-28") so it is for yours to take for $62.00 over at vintagefoe's Etsy shop.

  9. Oh! A lot of vintage dresses are too small for me too, the ones I set my eyes on are always 24-25 in the waist, And many that fir in the waist are too tight on the torso, I obviously have big ribs, eh.

  11. Ulrika - Yeah, vintage dresses can definitely be a little tricky in terms of size. Sometimes you have to search long and hard to come across the right size.

  12. As a cosplayer, I'm trying to see if I can use this for a costume based on a character from a comic book called Hellsing, this looks like something this character might wear. Thanks
