This original French vintage maxi dress is at least 50 years young and in excellent condition. The quality craftmanship and style is reflective of its origins.
The low rounded neckline and sleeve detailing is flattering and brings a whimsical attitude to the piece. Imagine barefoot barbeques and summer weddings - this classic styling and easy dressing up or down are apparent. Wear with your favourite jacket in the winter layering with a slimline merino and voila! a summer turns to winter.
Easy to wash and wear it's a piece for the long haul. This dress flatters the body looks great with flats in summer or boots in winter!
