Although unbranded, this dress has been thoughtfully designed and skillfully made. The black floral print cotton is beautifully bold and wonderful quality. Alongside this sits a fine pleated polyester blend making up the puffball style sleeves that are lined inside creating the puffed rouching. This same pleated fabric is used at the front and neck which sits in a high collar edged with a velvet ribbon. I replaced the inner band and vintage lace as it had not aged well. The replacement is genuine vintage cotton lace with an added cotton band lining the neck edge.

The fitted bodice has a long tie belt at the waist and the skirt falls in a gentle A line. The original zipper still works well.

A popular design this dress is an exquisite example of a fashion era that never really goes out of style.
