Gorgeous 1960s 'summer-of-love' full length frock with lots of the detailing you'd expect of the period: floral print, velvet ribbon, false (self-covered) button fastening, lace trimming at neck and cuffs, and - of course - leg o' mutton sleeves!

In pastel, ice-cream shades of pink, blue and cafe-au-lait on white, with an easy-to-wear, softly rounded neckline, and velvet ribbon bow under the bust, this is subtle for its time: no shouting, clashing colours, just understated prettiness!

Above all, it's the sleeves that do it for me; puffed at the shoulder and tight at the wrist, like something from a Jane Austen novel, they are a nod to the elegant past by a generation that was reinventing itself with enthusiasm!

Made from cotton (or a cotton mix), the body is lined and the whole is just perfect for the long hot summer ahead (not to mention the muddy festivals!). Approximate garment measurements are, bust: 38 ins/96.5 cms; waist: 30 ins/76 cms; hips: 40 ins/104 cms; length: 54 ins/137 cms; best fit, probably a size 12.
