Vintage BNWT Richard Shops size 36 (UK 8) green lurex dress

£50.00

Product description

Straight from the 1970's, this vintage Richards Shop dress is unworn and with the original tag. Although the measurements now fit a size 8 the shop tag states it is a size 12 and it is priced at £14.50. An unusual find, this dress is floor length and made from a polyester/lurex mix fabric in a bright shamrock green with silver lurex threads. The neat, bodice is fitted to the waist and is front fastened with three silver, domed buttons to the small lapels and large, pointed collar. The dress is sleeveless and the armholes are cut away slightly at the shoulder. From the waist seam the skirt has 2" wide pleats which widen to 5" at the hem and the dress is unlined. There are brown marks on the skirt from storage but the dress is washable.
