Bespoke size bust 38" natural linen dress

£40.00

Product description

Pure 1970's, this vintage dress is bespoke and beautifully made from natural coloured linen-type fabric. It has a low, square neckline front and back, and 3" deep yolk made in cotton type fabric patterned with vertical stripes of pale green, blue, yellow and beige interspersed with a flower pattern. The short, puff sleeves, made in the same fabric, are gathered from the shoulders into an elasticated frill edged with lace; this lace also edges the neckline. The dress widens from the yolk into a very full A-line shape with a 10" deep panel of gathered striped fabric attached to an 11" panel of plain fabric at the hem. The dress is ankle length and in excellent as new condition. There are no fastenings and because of the deep, square neckline can be pulled over the head.
