Glorious vintage 1960s pink dress and coat.Please
FREE delivery worldwide!!Add to wishlist
Lovely 1960s slightly fitted, sleeveless dress with embroidered roll neck has a matching coat with covered buttons and decorative slit pockets, and is in excellent condition.
The neck line rolls sweetly, and fastens at the back with hooks and eyes. It is decorated at its base with embroidery in a looped pattern.
The dress is deceptively simple, fully lined and beautifully finished, with a taped hem; basically straight, the waist is nicely shaped and the skirt falls with a very slight flair.
The decoration on the coat echoes that of the neckline; each of the two little slit pockets are picked out in a similar style....but beware! This is from the time when a lady simply did not walk around with her hands in her pockets: they are mostly for show!
Like the dress, the coat is fully lined, and has a little round neck. Quite fitted, it fastens with six self-covered buttons with a poppa at the neck for tidiness. Although the two look great together, the coat is perfect for summer, over almost anything!
Gorgeous, unique, and (I believe) perfect, this is made from a textured cotton or cotton mix. Marked size 38, it is probably closest to a UK 8, possibly 10. The dress measures approximately 34 inches/86.5 cms at the bust, 30 inches/76 cms at the waist, 38 inches/96.5 cms hips; length about 36 inches/91 cms. The coat measures approximately 15 inches across the shoulders, 36 ½ inches in length; please note that all measurements are of the garment, not the person it will fit!
