Description

  • This vintage style Green Gables dress inspired by the 1800s from Emmy Design Sweden is packed full of irresistible details!
  • The voluminous 3/4 length sleeves are balanced wonderfully by the pleated full skirt that hide those all important pockets in the side seams.
  • Curved gathered yokes highlight the dropped waist design splendidly which elongates the torso.
  • Depending on height and body shape, the length will hit you somewhere from mid calf to ankle, an ideal length for an autumn/winter dress.
  • The matching attached tie belt is designed to be tied at the back as tight or as loose as you like. 
  • You can button the dress all the way up or unbuttoned for a more casual look, either way the Grandpa collar sits well.
  • Also available in a soft brushed cotton in a rust coloured plaid here

 

Size & Fit

  • Most important is that you make sure your bust fits.
  • Emmy recommends you choose a size that has a 1,2-2 inches bigger waist and 2-4 inches bigger bust measurement than your own as the waist can be tightened with the straps, either on the back or in the front.
  • Fabric may have minimal shrinkage in length; up to 2%.

Green Gables Dress

Manufactured in Lithuania with fabric from Italy.

Emmy Design Sweden

By focusing on timeless style and a quality that lasts for years, Emmy aims to slow down the pace of the fashion industry, reduce needless mass production and thus do what they can to help protect the environment. Their small scale production is split between two factories, they make their clothing in Lithuania and their knitwear in China Fabrics are sourced internationally according to Emmy’s specifications.

This small business is run by two women, sisters in fact. Emmy is the designer; she founded the company in 2010. Lisa came on board to help run the company after finishing her management degree in 2015. The level of thought, effort and professionalism that goes into every detail of their work to ensure best fit, style, quality and service is testament to these wonderful women’s achievements.

Emmy and Revival Retro

Revival Retro has built a wonderful relationship with Emmy and Lisa over the years founded on mutual respect and admiration. As women run small businesses we support and consult with each other on many aspects of business not just each new season’s collection as we constantly aim to improve our internal processes and remain relevant to our customers wants and needs.
