Another vintage rescue for me. This arrived with damage to the front placket which you'll see I've repaired with contrast bias. I've also made a couple of visible mends with small embroideries. A couple of buttons were missing so I've mismatched with some vintage buttons that compliment the colouring. The dress washed well but I've discovered some marks that - although they blend in with the busy design are just visible.
If you can forgive this dress it's history, please take another look as it is an absolute beauty. My job really is a labour of love. I save these beautiful pieces when I know they are still so wearable, not only that, they have added value because they show their history like a badge of honour - this dress deserves another lease of life.
It is a soft poly cotton mix that needed little ironing. The three quarter sleeve has a flounce cuff and a further flounce can be found at the hem. The dress buttons down the front with matching fabric covered buttons apart from the two vintage ones I added.
There is tailoring at the bust and you will find a generous pocket on either side. A tie belt completes this easy to wear yet eye-catching dress, the colours still pop out glorioulsy!
I'm hoping someone can feel the love for this dress in the way I do.
