This original vintage dress is at least 50 years young and in excellent condition. The iconic fit and flare shape is always a head turner. Take note of the delicate neckline and craftmanship of eras gone by.

A lace dress like this is seldom seen in such fantastic condition. Original fixtures and obviously a well coveted piece of fashion history that was well cared for. The slightly off white of the lace, with the gentle dove bluey-gray of the ruched waist offers an ultra-feminine silhouette.

This is a piece to take you from wedding to afternoon tea. From vintage festival to a special evening out a dress in timeless style. Easy to gently hand wash and care for so that she has at least another seventy years of wear!

Looks great with flats in summer or boots in winter!
