Hello Summer!

Beautiful Sundress made from a Daisy embroidered Cotton fabric in either soft, buttery Yellow or dusty, vintage light Blue. The embroidery itself is Creme-colored, enhancing the vintage look of it. The un-embroidered parts of the fabric are placed around the waist creating a wonderfully flattering look. Yellow dress is bigger sized so looks a little wide on the mannequin. Fit per size is best shown in the blue version.

 

The dress features a decorative triple-bow at the waist, formed princess seams for that vintage silhouette, a V-neckline in the back, a full gathered skirt, a typical wide hem and short cap sleeves. The sleeves are designed to have a gathered look (no elastic incorporated), mirroring the gathered skirt and provide coverage and room to move while still providing a lot of room to move.

 

The dress closes with a back, lapped, metal zipper, has a lined bodice and an unlined skirt typically for that era of the 1950s  (underskirt recommended). Authentic invisibly (hand-) sewn hems, facings.. Hidden side pockets on request (choose from "customization" drop down)..

 

Classic midi length (see sizing table) or custom length (Free of charge 0,00CHF). Dress shown with a petticoat- not included.
