Fabulous Rinascimento Summer Dress from the Cose Cosi line

Condition: Unused without tags

Size: L - to fit approx UK 14

Wow! This is a fabulous dress from Italian fashion house Rinascimento from their Linea Cose Cosi range. It's in a fabulous summer fit and flare style in a mix of fabrics creating an overall café au lait or soft caramel colour palette. Perfect for summer holidays or parties!

It has narrow (but not spaghetti) straps leading to a scooped neckline front and rear with a functioning button-through bodice at the centre front to waistline plus a centre-back zip that runs to just below the waist.

The bodice is a mix of fabrics: cream broderie anglaise bordered by a deep chocolate tiny polka-dotted cream fabric to the front and plain café au lait to the sides then with the polka-dot fabric repeated at the rear of the bodice. The broderie anglaise part of the bodice is lined in plain cream cotton fabric. The centre front of the bodice has five little mother of pear buttons as the fastening with the button placket bordered by a frill of cream and chocolate floral fabric (repeated as the bottom flounce of the skirt) then coffee coloured lace which is carried around the front neckline to where this becomes the straps. Finally, there are soft caramel coloured satin ribbons forming a corset-style eyelet and lace trim to each side of the waist, allowing the dress to be made more fitted, as desired and adding a really beautiful finishing touch.

The skirt of the dress is in four tiers, using each of the fabrics of the bodice, starting with the plain café au lait fabric over the hips (a soft caramel ribbon trim finishes this on the front only); then a deep flounce of cream broderie anglaise; then a flounce of deep chocolate spotted cream; and ending with a flounce of cream and chocolate floral fabric. The skirt is lined in a cream acetate fabric from the bottom of the café au lait fabric with this lining finished off with a soft caramel flounce in a sort of taffeta fabric.

I purchased this dress off eBay last year and really hoped to slim down enough to wear it, but sadly, that hasn't happened, so rather than it sit in my wardrobe unworn for another year, I'm listing it for one of you lucky ladies to grab a bargain!

The photographs included are of the actual item for sale. Please also see my listing for a Firetrap jacket that provides further detail of how this can dressed with a different style for a totally different, yet feminine look.

I am always willing to combine postage - just ask and I'll give you a price!

PAYMENT TERMS AND OTHER INFORMATION ______________________________________________________________________________________

This item comes from an animal-friendly (dog and cat), smoking home, although I do not smoke inside the house. Every care is taken to ensure that your item is not affected by this. I hope that will not prevent you from bidding.

If you have any questions, please ask before the end of auction. I will generally respond to questions in the evenings (UK time).

I accept PayPal or Cash on Collection (where stated) within the UK.

I do not accept cheques / checks in any format (personal, business or echeques); Postal Orders, Money Orders or other forms of payment other than PayPal unless you are collecting when cash is preferred.


Please read my me page for full details of terms of sale including returns policy


Please be aware that this is a British auction, and the price is in UK pounds, not dollars, Euros etc.


Returns Briefly

I am selling my own surplus items - I am not a shop!

I cannot offer refunds if you've changed your mind, the item doesn't fit etc. as I aim to give all appropriate measurements, taken accurately at the time of listing, and give sufficient photos to give a good idea of what it looks like, colour etc. If there's something I've missed (I'm only human!), please use the Ask a Question option on the listing or Email Me and I will do my best to answer before the listing ends.

I will refund Buy It Now or Auction end price only (no refunds of postage) in the unlikely event that I have grossly misrepresented an item in the listing. You will be required to return the item via the same postage method it was sent to you and in the same condition before I will consider a refund. Please see my me page for full details.

For collection-only items, I expect you to satisfy yourself at the time of collection that the item is as described and as such do not offer refunds for collection only items.


Want to Collect? Multiple Items?

I am happy to arrange for collection from my home or place of work, subject to prior arrangement.

Some items will be listed as Collection Only due to the nature and / or weight of the item. If you cannot collect and really want an item shipped to you, I will do my best to find a price, but it could be expensive - please ask first!

I am happy to combine postage for items won within 7 days of each other - please let me know by email if you are bidding on other items, so that I know what you're doing and can give you a revised P&P (S&H) price. I do not offer a discount as such, but will get a revised price based on the combined weight - this normally works out cheaper than posting separate items and I only charge for one lot of packaging.
