Lovely dress from the days when a lady was a lady and wouldn't dream of wearing trousers (possibly jodphurs for mucking out, but never slacks!) It's in a lovely drapey jersy fabric, and is warm as well as stylish!
The 70s were a time when fashion looked back to the 1930s, and although this label was not known for breaking new ground fashion-wise, it seems likely they were infuenced by prevailing trends....with its long, buttoned sleeves, round neck, sensible skirt length and paisley-inspired floral print, this could easily be a 1930s dress.
Only the tasselled belt gives the game away, and I suspect the fabric will be much easier to care for!
Soft and drapey it may be, but it isn't a modern size 16, I'm afraid! Although there is some give to the fabric, I don't think anyone larger than a current UK 14 would get away with it....approximate dress measurements are 40 inches (101 cms) at the bust, with waist and hips free; length is 40 inches (101 cms) or thereabouts. In lovely condition, it is a true gem!
