This original vintage dress is an incredible colour and flattering style. At least 30 years young and in great condition. The quality craftmanship and detail in its style is reflective of its origins.
The 'v' of the neckline with feminine ruffles combined with the delicate gathering at the shoulder provides a ideal bustline. Imagine this under a jacket in the winter with the soft collar peeping out. Classic style and taste are apparent here.
