Alright, favourite and most rare vintage dress right here: This German Folk dress takes our breath away! How unique is the fit, the fabric, the pattern, the coins, the velvet details?? And the cool thing is, this dress might be old and it might also belong into the style of traditionally German garments, nevertheless it's so adaptable and easy to integrate into contemporary wardrobe! It's super comfortable, goes with you through the seasons, depending on how you style it and it|s definitely one of a kind. Nobody else will wear this dress wherever it is that you show up. It's hard to date this dress down to the decade, because it's just so timeless, but looking at the absence of a care label, the meticulous hand made craft of the dress and the brand label we would put it somewhere between 1950-1970. A wonderful statement piece with velvet chest part and hem, decorative red braided border and metal coin buttons reading Fortes Fortuna Adjuvat (which correctly spoken would be a commonly made mistake, because it should say "Fortis" at least it does in the Latin original ;). Metal zipper on the side. Due to the velvet on this dress, it|s quite heavy! Fabric: Tag missing Condition: Impeccable vintage condition, we can|t find any flaws Size: Vintage German 40, fits S Bust (single): 46cm / 18” Length: 98cm / 38.5”

About the shop
Learn more about Trouvaille Vintage
Hey! Welcome to Trouvaille Vintage.

We are trying to find the most unique vintage pieces for you guys. As long as we can think, we were always the eccentric ones. We loved items that have a special twist to them, that are colorful at best or have an outstanding pattern. We weren't very much interested in looking like everyone else, which is terrible when you're in high school but great afterwards. We also never had a style tribe we associated ourselves with. We changed our style as fast as our mood – sometimes boho, sometimes sleek, other times rock'n'roll, then again 90s – and created our very own style mix while being at it.

With a background in advertising, we always had a special love for Vintage items. Love the hunt, the stories and the unique style you can create with Vintage pieces. Not only can you elevate your contemporary style and give it an edge, but also create a wardrobe that you will see on nobody else. Isn't that great in times of fashion clones wherever you look?

We are trying to always find pieces that are outstanding: be it their fabric, their color, their pattern, a detail or the place they were made. Happy to have you here. Contact us any time for any questions you might have. We are very happy to hunt for something specific that you are looking for, just let us know!

Returns, refunds, and exchange

I accept returns within 14 days, on reasonable terms. Reasons such as 
"I don't like the item" or "i have changed my mind" are no return reasons. Items that are broken, different than described/pictured or absolutely don't fit may be returned.

Additional policies and FAQS


Please note that we ship all our items with tracking. This explains the higher shipping price, because tracking isn't cheap from the Netherlands. We want to make sure your item arrives safely and you can always see where it is. 

It is indeed possible to cut the shipping costs by sending the items without tracking and smaller items in letters. Please contact us/TPH in case you want to make other shipping arrangements.

Also if you intend to purchase multiple items, contact us so we can find the best solution possible!

Sizing details

We measure the items, when they are lying flat. All measurements are in cm. Read them carefully and make sure the item is a fit for you, since all sales are final and non-refundable.
New to vintage fits? Measure something that you already own! This way you can easily compare it to the measurements of our items. But do know: vintage sizes are nothing like contemporary sizes. A small is not a small anymore, and also denim sizes have changed a lot. The rule of thumb for Levi’s denim: add 2 sizes to your contemporary jeans size to get the right fit! (e.g. current size 27 -> Levi’s 501 29). But then again, each jean really fits differently.
