Suttles & Seawinds Vintage 1990s Floral Silk Dress // Sleeveless // Size 16 or XL
Ask a question
Suttles & Seawinds is a local company who began designing romantic clothing from beautiful flowered and natural fabrics, even quilted items, back in the 1970s. Their style has changed with the fashions over the years but this dress is most probably a late 80s, or early 90s design. It has a fitted bodice slightly curved at waist and a full pleated skirt.
The quality and attention to detail is amazing in this dress. A beautiful floral print in light silk crepe is totally lined with black chiffon for body but keeping the dress lightweight and soft. The silk has a black background with two tone olive green foliage, deep rose and pink tulips, light blue and cream lilacs and cream and yellow daisies. For the truest color in my pictures see the second image.
measurements lying flat:
bust 21 3/4 inches across (43 1/2" around)
Length of bodice from shoulder to lowest point in the waist -19"
Total length from shoulder to hem - 47"
Waist 18" (36" around)
Back zipper 18"
The dress is in like new condition and comes from a pet free, smoke free home but has not been cleaned by me. It would need to be dry cleaned as on the label. The label also says 'light sensitive' which I have never seen before but I assume it means not to hang it in strong light.

Shipping from Canada
I ship by Canada Post expedited. This will go by air internationally and in Canada. Most scarves can ship in a padded envelope and so are not expensive to ship by letter air mail. However this does not include tracking. There is however, a shipping upgrade available if you prefer to pay for tracking. When you checkout, there should be a down arrow by the 'standard shipping' box - click and you will see an amount for shipping with tracking.
Most of my scarves are already made, so I can ship out within 1-2 business days. However, a few styles are pictures of previously sold scarves whose colours and styles can be more or less repeated. (This is mentioned in the listing.) These can take up to 7 days to post.
Once I have posted an item, shipping times vary - anywhere on the east coast of Canada and the U.S. should take up to a week. Further west may take a week to 10 business days. Internationally can take up to two weeks or more.
