Vintage bespoke size 34" bust turquoise long dress

£45.00

Product description

This beautifully made, bespoke vintage dress dates from the late 1960's/early 1970's and is made from a firm crepe-type fabric in a lovely shade of deep turquoise. The dress has an empire line bodice with a deep, square neckline. The floor length, narrow skirt is gathered under the bust, around each side and across the back leaving a flat section at the front. The long sleeves finish in deep points at the hem and are trimmed with a half inch width of sequinned, silver braid. Fastened at back with a long, metal zip, the body of the dress is lined with pale turquoise satin type fabric, although the sleeves are unlined. In excellent condition for age, this is a very well constructed dress.
