Richards - Size: 14 - Green, white and navy - Vintage calf length dress

£29.99

Product description

Gorgeous vintage dress from now closed down high street retailer Richards. We think the dress dates from the late 70s or early 80s, but it is not easy to tell from the style. Notched collar with lapels that cross over and extend down to the waist. Wide sash at the waist in the same fabric, sewn in at the top, with short loose lengths to tie attractively. Short, square sleeves. Wrap around style skirt. Darts at the front and back add some shape, though the dress is designed to fit loosely. The viscose fabric is soft, with gorgeous drape and movement, and should be a joy to wear. Some slight damage as would be expected from a vintage item. Two tiny (<2mm, easily repaired) frayed areas at the front and a tiny faint stain. Both are very hard to spot and do not take away from the beauty of the dress.

Size 14 measuring:
Chest: 106cm/42"
Outside sleeve: 28cm/11"
Waist: 92cm/36" (though can be gathered in a further 2" using the sash)
Length: 118cm/46.5"

100% viscose. Machine wash.

A fabulous dress and a must have for vintage lovers, particularly those with an eye for beautiful patterns.
