I do love a label and this one carries the Selfridges London tag so is a little bit special.
It also has the Crimplene mark, that polyester mix that means it's easy to wash and wear, virtually crease free. This particular dress has a bobbled finish which is perfect for Crimplene which is known to pull, you literally can't tell!
Long sleeved with a cool shaped 60s collar, the dress front has four dinky plastic silver buttons. Fastening at the back with a good quality metal zipper and hook and eye, the dress has a lovely shape thanks to the tailoring at the back and panelled front. There is also tailoring in the sleeves at the elbow. It's a good length, sitting just below my mannequin's knees - and she is long legged!
