This stylish boho maxi has been handmade - as were so many 'back in the day' which gives it a uniqueness from the choice of delicate lace trim that borders the scoop neck edge to the handstitched hem.
The dress is fully lined - the lining does show signs of wear, particularly as overlockers weren't used to finish inner selve-edges so some fraying which can't be seen as well as some staining of the lining skirt and lining bodice at the armpits. Given the time I would remove the lining but as it doesn't detract from the dress when worn I have left it intact.
The sleeves aren't lined, fitted to the elbow where they have a bell shaped lower cuff. the bust area has shaping and does show some staining under the arm. At some point there may have been a belt as small belt loops can be found either side, these can be easily trimmed off if not needed.
The floral pattern is creme on brown at the top falling to brown on creme at the lower edge of hem and sleeve. The dress fastens with it's original zipper.
