About

This is a classic 1950s style dress made of an apricot coloured cotton. The fabric is made up of diamond shapes with Broderie Anglaise cut outs so a slip needs to be worn underneath. The bust has a small amount of ruching that gives it shape and the waist is cinched in. The sleeves have a slight cap to them that comes over the shoulders.

Broderie anglaise is a type of open embroidery, typically in floral patterns, on fine cotton or linen.

Bust 36'', waist 34'' length 45''
