I'm dating this adorable dress from the very early 70s; although it has bags of 60s style, I believe it was influenced by Ken Russell's 1971 film of 'The Boyfriend'.
Carefully hand-made, from a warm white cotton with orange leaves and tendrils climbing all over it, the dress has a little round neck and arms, is fitted to the hips, where there is a fold-over (giving the impression of a two-piece), then falls to just below the knee with a fuller skirt. It fastens at the back with a long zip.
It's a shape that's both flattering, and easy to wear!
Absolutely gorgeous, and, as far as I can see, in perfect condition, it's closest in size to a modern UK size 10 or 12: the long zip suggests that it should fit fairly tightly to the skin. Approximate measurements are: bust, measured under the arms, 36 ins/91.5 cms; waist, 34 ins/87 cms; hips, 40 ins/102 cms; length from back of neck, 41 ins/104 cms.
