Indie Clothing Designer Spotlight: Dig For Victory Clothing

While I don’t do the full on vintage look, I do tend to gravitate towards vintage style dresses. I love buying real vintage, but with my measurements it can be hard to find stuff in my size. Given my love for vintage and difficult sizing I was thrilled to find Dig For Victory, a company that will recreate vintage dresses using vintage end of roll fabrics – but with custom measurements! Think of them as the EShakti for vintage gals. You can even have them add extra details like bows via custom request.

Dig for Victory is based out of Brighton, England and has a storefront there as well as an online presence. The concept is pretty simple: pick a dress pattern or just a fabric from their stash and then either buy a dress in your size or have them make you a custom dress. You can change sleeve lengths, sleeve types as well as details like hem lengths. As someone who struggles to find vintage dresses that hit at my knees, I’m tempted just by the custom measurements and the hem length feature. They have an adorable stash of prints that ranges from classic florals to Paddington Bear print.

I’ve never run across custom clothing that uses vintage fabrics before, but it feels like the best of both worlds to me. I also like that Dig for Victory offers a range of dress bodies that includes tea dresses, wiggle dresses and lots of dresses that are in between. For instance, this Black and Yellow Heidi Dress is a nice option for those who aren’t wedded to either wiggle dresses or giant circle skirts.

I’m definitely adding Dig for Victory to my list of dress boutiques to try soon. Dresses run around 115 GBP (or $185 USD) with a small customization fee.

  1. Oh my gosh! I love the concept, the customization, and most of all the styles! That green dress at the top is absolutely delicious. Thank you for introducing me to this company! You’ll have to let us know when you try them.

    • I love the idea that you can customize for height, which is a bit issue with vintage style dresses. As a tall person, I’m sure you can relate! I’ll definitely do a review once I get around to ordering one – I feel like picking just one would be really difficult!

  2. They have great reviews. While I haven’t bought any of their dresses yet, I actually plan on ordering one for a black tie wedding for March.

  3. Oooh, so cute! I will definitely have to check them out– I’ve been on a major vintage kick lately.

    • I love vintage styles, but I also love the idea of customizing it to work with your wardrobe. I think that’s a big part of why people feel vintage styles are fussy and this makes it easier for people to try them.

  4. I TOTALLY got sucked in at the Tea Dress & the Heidi dress. YES GIMME PLEASE.

    • I love them all! That Heidi is particularly cute though. Those types of styles never work on me because the bust room is always too small, but it would if I could customize it!

  5. Oh I love their clothes. I have stalked them for years and still remember when they just had a tiny Etsy store. I never took the risk and splurged though, but for the next wedding I definitely will.
