Beautiful Dress made of a wonderful Cotton fabric with floating florals in shades of Rusty Red and Brown on an Off-White ground.

 

It features a rectangular neckline in the front and back, short Dolman sleeves, a hand-pleated skirt and two decorative bows in the front that almost appear like butterflies (lat. "Papilio") on your shoulders - so romantic. 

 

The dress comes with the matching belt included, hand-crochet belt loops. Invisibly sewn hem, hand- stitched neckline facings. Lined  bodice. Skirt unlined. Back, lapped metal zipper.

 

Classic mid-calf length (see sizing table) or custom length (Free of charge 0,00CHF. Please choose from drop down navigation and list your preferred length in the note to seller section during checkout).

 

Combine this dress with the beautiful Cropped Swing Jacket "1947" to create a perfectly matching ensemble. The shade of Rusty Red is the same that you can find on the dress fabric but refers to the darker shades in the blossoms - "Moody Rusty Red". 

 

Dress shown with a petticoat underneath (not included).
