This is a really versatile little dress! Wear it smart-casual on its own or belted, or add the matching bolero and heels for that 'dressed up' look!
Dating from the late 1950s or early 60s, it's in a man-made material, which means it has kept its colours well...and it's a lovely fabric, with a clear, white background covered in green blue, orange and coffee-coloured flowers in wonderful vibrant colours, clustering closely together at the hem and with a trellis effect on the body and jacket.
I think it was hand made, as there are no labels. The dress is A-line, with little cap sleeves and fastens at the back with a metal zip. There is no hem to speak of. The bolero is fully lined, with sleeves that just cover the elbows. It's in excellent condition, with just the slightest signs of wear under the arms, where the seams look slightly frayed...no visible marks or stains, and nothing that shows in wear.
It's a lovely little dress, and completely out of the ordinary! Approximate measurements: bust 39 ins/99 cms, length from back of neck 36 ins/91.5 cms, best fit a UK 12-14.
