Vintage bespoke size bust 34" (UK 10) white floral long dress

£45.00

Product description

This pretty vintage, bespoke dress from the 1970's is expertly made from a light weight cotton type fabric which is slightly transparent and unlined. With a narrow and low scoop neckline, it has a fitted bodice and short, puff sleeves gathered to give a frill at the hem. Gathered gently at the waist seam, the skirt is very long and falls to the floor in soft folds and the dress is fastened with a long, central metal back zip. The fabric of the dress is patterned with clusters of dusky pink flowers highlighted with orange and foliage of teal and lime green against a white background. The fabric has been used cleverly as towards the hem of the dress, in the same colour way with the addition of royal blue, is a deep border of much larger flowers, and this is repeated on the puff sleeves. The dress is in very good, as new condition except for a small yellow age mark on the left side of the skirt.
