Former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’ style is practically synonymous with ladylike and sartorial grace. The shift dress was one of her go-to silhouettes.
The Jackie III is a classic straight shift dress that nips in slightly at the waist. Princess seams, common in the 60s but today are used primarily in bridal, skim the body creating a fitted silhouette without ever being tight.
- Fitted shift silhouette
- Vintage 60s princess seams skim your body and give shape to the dress
- Blind hem sewn by hand
- Invisible back zip with hook & eye closure
The Jackie takes 10 hours for one craftsman to sew start to finish.
