Vintage Howards Size 16 Red Linen Dress and Bolero

£45.00

Product description

A vintage dress and bolero in size 16 (tight fit on a size 12 manikin) by Howards. The linen fabric is printed in in swirls of red, white, grey and blue in an abstract floral design. The dress is sleeveless with a curved neckline and a central front panel going down to the dropped waistline. The skirt is attractively gathered and there is a centre back zip. The bolero has short sleeves and a tie front gathered onto a band. The curved neckline flips open to show the dress underneath and can be fastened with a press stud to give a slightly different look. This is a statement outfit having lots of fullness in the skirt and medium weight fabric which holds its shape well. Looks to be hand made but does have the same label in each piece. Very important ! Please be guided by the ample measurements we have included as this dress is more like a 10-12.

No washing instructions but could be hand washable

Length 39"
Chest 34"
Waist 26"
Outer Sleeve 4"
