Vintage1950s vibrant striped dress by Blanes.Please
FREE delivery worldwide!!Add to wishlist
Princess Mimi is a huge fan of Blanes dresses, and always has been - they are well-made and quirky, and this one is no exception! A vibrant summer frock in a vertical stripe, the pattern used to dramatic effect on the bodice and pockets, you won't find anything to beat this in any shop today!
The slim-fitting bodice gives way to a full pleated skirt with one large pocket. It fatens at the back with a long metal zip, with hook and eye, and the hem is taped.
The cotton is striped, in various colours and widths. The widest is sky blue, although there is a dark blue which is the same width, but this colour is also in a narrower stripe, with yellow and purple the same width, and a narrow stripe of lime green....oh, just look at the pictures!
It's gorgeous! And in very good condition for its age! Marked as a size 16, it's probably closer to a modern size 12: approximate measurements are bust 38 ins/96.5 cms, waist 28 ins/71 cms, length 42 ins/107 cms.
