This stylish little dress has a lot of skillful tailoring and design features packed in.
For starters it is fully lined, the lining being sewn into the bodice from the neck to the hem and fastening with its original zipper which is in good working order. The outer dress bodice then fastens over this with fabric covered buttons along with hook and eyes at the neck and waist.
The short sleeves are unlined but their cuffs have been lined inside. The dress has been tailored at the bust and shoulders with darts below the skirt waist giving it a pencil slim fit. A tie belt is attached at the waist.
There is no fabric content given but the textured knit feels like a polyester cotton blend, almost a fine crochet finish with a floral display in beige and turquoise.
The label gives the size as a UK 12 but by todays standards that would be a little small - although the measurements fit a standard 12 exactly. I would put this more 8/10 as it is very fitted.
