How unusual is this beauty?
It's a handmade dress, possibly designed by the wearer and features their tailor tacks and hand stitch detail. The dress is in overall great condition without damage or pulls. I did have to strengthen some of the seams and there were a couple of stains which I have made small embroideries over.
A long-line design, the dress zips up the front with its original zipper in good working order. The most prominent feature is the large hood which has been lined in emerald green satin finished polyester.
The fabric print is a glorious throwback to the seventies. Tri-coloured large green flowers of varying descriptions with a black outline sit on a pale green background. As mentioned previously, I have endeavoured to cover the staining, come very faint lines remain near the hem which were hard to distinguish.
I really hope this stand-out dress can find its new forever home as the care that has been put in making it and then restoring it must deserve a second chance.
