This original vintage dress is at least 50 years young and in excellent condition. The quality craftmanship and style is reflective of its maker.

The discreet peplum and beautiful discreet pattern in the silk is flattering to the wearer. Imagine under a jacket in the winter this is a truly versatile piece. Indulge in classic styling and taste so apparent here.

This beautiful piece will need gentle care and appropriate affection when laundering to keep the naturally soft silk in 'tip top' shape as presented - it's a piece for the long haul.

This dress flatters the body looks great with flats in summer or boots in winter!
