1960s French Couture Blue and Yellow Embroidered A-Line Shift Dress

About

This unique 1960s Blue and Yellow embroidered shift dress has plenty of character and is a charming example of 1960s modernity. The machine embroidered cotton overlay is a flattering combination of floral and geometric design, in cheerful yellow, navy and white. The dress is a simple sleeveless a-line shift cut, with a single full length zip at the reverse and has deep navy silk trim along the hem-line of the skirt, which finishes just below the knee. The high rounded neckline features a pretty tie detail which falls to the side, and is made of navy silk to echo the hem. The dress is in lovely condition and would best suit size small or US size 4, UK size 8. Unlabelled but of couture construction.
