Rockabilly/ Gothabilly: 'Domino Doll' Dress by Bettie Page Clothing at Cats Like Us


This is a great example of how the cut makes the garment. Black and white panels create a beautiful, clean shape, and the faux bolero continues the lines all the way up, which elongates the body most attractively. I can't imagine this working with any other two colours, however, except for antique white and navy blue, perhaps.

Like Rockabilly/Gothabilly pieces usually tend to, I imagine this fitting best on a shapely person. And the hem must be exactly the right length, as shown.

Found here. On sale, two sizes left.
