Vintage 1960s black sack dress with stunning back detail by Blanes.Please
FREE delivery worldwide!!Add to wishlist
Here is a lovely, quirky Blanes dress in heavy black cotton - demure and completely unexceptional at first glance. The front has a round neck, from which the dress hangs in pleats (I'm not sure if this is what was called a sack dress, but certainly it's that sort of idea).
The dress is sleeveless and hangs to above the knee. Of unrelieved black, it is lined throughout, and in absolutley perfect condition.
It's the back that makes it special: the neck is scooped to the level of the armpit, and, on each side of the zip is a big, fabric rose with a long streamer the length of the dress - gorgeously floaty!
Guaranteed to grab attention on any 'little black dress' occasion! It's marked as a size 16, which suggests its roughly equivalent to a smallish modern UK size 14 or largish 12. Approximate measurements are bust 39 ins/99 cms, waist and hips free, length of back 28 ins/71 cms.
