Vintage 60s silky Tricel dress by Carnegie.Please
FREE delivery worldwide!!Add to wishlist
Sophisticated, chic, and very wearable, I thought I'd keep this for myself...but the old bitch has eyes in the back of her head (that's not an insult - Princess Mimi is a female poodle of extremely high pedigree; and old enough to be well past her sell-by)! I then offered to wear it for the photographer - and discovered it doesn't fit me...so someone out there is going to get extremely lucky!
The label dates it to the early sixties, but neither its condition nor anything else about it suggests this date...it's a classic shape, beautifully made by a prestige design house, and as far as I can see, without a flaw. If you're a closet vintagista, this is your dress!
I love the design - spots were never so witty before - it reminds me of a downpour of rain! Made from silky-feeling Tricel, this is easy care and easy wear: round neck, just enough sleeves, subtly fitted and a sensible length, what's not to love? The chocolate colour will bring up the blue in eyes, the blond in hair, and flatter every skin-tone.
With or without a belt, you know it'll look better on you than it does on the mannequin!
Approximate garment measurements are: bust 42 ins/106.5 cms, hips 44 ins/111.5 cms, length 39 ins/99 cms - closest, I think, to a modern, UK size 16 - you lucky thing!
