Lovely little everyday dress in a heavy-woven fabric, in a flattering shade of blue with buttons at the front and contrasting white trim on the collar and pockets. I've added a wide leather belt - it needs a belt - which I think gives a slight air of 'uniform' which is apparently very sexy...but I'm afraid is not included in the sale!

I am told that this dress was actually worn by the staff of one of Dorchester's leading stores of the 1950s - apparently, it came in various colours according to seniority!

It fastens at the front with buttons to the waist, and below that, a zip, with a hook and eye at the join between the two. There are belt loops, but no original belt although the three buttons are original) and there is a little kick pleat at the back, which the pictures don't really far as I can tell, there are no faults or marks on it, and it's certainly very wearable!

Modern fit would be about a UK size 16.....Approximate measurements are 45 ins (114 cms)under the pits, 34 ins (86.5 cms) waist, hips 43 ins (109 cms), length from back of neck, 41 ins (105.5 cms).


Princess Mimi believes that you can only feel confident about buying lovely things on the internet if you can have a really good look at them.
