SAMMY DRESS 'Mallard Lace'

When opportunity knocks and someone puts a ticket to St. Maarten or Miami in your hand, don't think twice just get up and go-go.  All you need is sunscreen, flip flops, a bikini and one tasty little dress. This flirty faux wrap Midi length A-line is it!  Light and luxurious, off the plane and onto the beach! Sammy is fab on every gal.

I created this pattern and have been making this dress for 30 years!  I play with the skirt length and add on a collar here and there, to work with whatever fabrics I conjure, so that you can always have 'a new' version of the  dress whose supreme fit and fabric you have come to rely on for 3 decades. 

Others have attempted to copy & produce this baby, but these knock-offs will never measure up to my master.  And they're always mass produced. For my limited editions there's no competition.  My collection remains-  MADE WITH LOVE IN NYC SINCE 1992  - Quality and fit, standing the test of time, season after gleeful season... that's me!

This special edition Lace Sammy Dress is Sammy at her finest!  The Mallard stretch lace is, of course sheer when it's flying solo sans a slip, because it's lace!  Sammy comes with a separate black knit slip that may be used as a slip... or maybe even on her own as a slip dress.  She also comes with both a  lace belt as well as a black  knit belt to mix and match... bow or knot, also fantastic!

PLEASE NOTE: This Sammy dress runs small. So- if you normally wear a size 6 please take a size 8! There's no zipper so you simply put your arms thru first... then over your head- meaning, don't step into Sammy and pull over your hips - there's not enough extra wiggle room for that.

Sammy's  high-ish waist in the lace brings, because of the texture, brings the waist up to an empire. This baby is gorgeous dress for day or nite, black tie or summer day soiree!


Poly/Lycra is hand wash and wear.  Dry cleaning optional.
