One of a kind vintage piece - Get it before it’s gone

 

If you are looking for a second wedding dress, this is the one.  Lovely tea length, off-white dress covered in semi-sheer lace rosettes.  The sleeve length just above the arm shows the most flattering part of your arm.  The unlined rosette lace on the sleeves and across the neckline shows just a bit of skin.  Scalloped hem and sleeves.  Hem has satin edging.  Fitted waist. Double white lining at the bust line with single weight lining in the rest of the dress. Label size 12 but fits like an 8.  Please check measurements.  

Ricco Antonio was a high fashion, eveningwear line designed by Filipino born Ricardo Gorosin. While Gorosin had no design training he watched his mom who had a thriving design business in Los Angeles, catering to entertainers such as Cass Elliott and
He began making custom designs for individual clients in the early 1980s. By chance his fashions caught the eye of Bertha Wright, while he was visiting his sister in Lexington Kentucky. Wright, owner of the famous Calumet Farms horse-breeding farm set him up in business under the name Ricco Antonio in 1983 and he moved his base of operations to Lexington.  Eventually Gorosin and his patron had a falling out and the label closed in the 1990s.

When is a size 12 not a size 12? When it‘s vintage.

Today’s sizes have very little correlation to clothing size labels from past decades.   Over the past 20+ years designers and manufacturers have fed our egos by making standard size numbers smaller and smaller. Back in the 1960s there was no size 0.  The smallest size was a 6. Plus today’s men and women are fitter, taller and have much more muscle tone of than people of earlier eras. Even today‘s undergarments make a difference. Today’s woman isn’t corseted, girdled or wearing a stiff bra. So even the thinnest of people sometimes have trouble with vintage sizing.

 

When shopping for vintage clothing at MadgesHatbox look at the “measured flat” sizing in each vintage clothing listing.  This means the garment was lying on a table and measurements were taken from side-to-side. To compare, pull a like piece from your own closet. Place it flat on a table and measure across the front at the shoulders, bust, waist and hips. The bust measurement is taken directly under the armpit. It’s also a good idea to measure your sleeve length from the end of the shoulder to the wrist.
