Rare Vintage Boy London 1980s American Flag Hand Painted Cotton 80s Dress


Extremely rare vintage BOY LONDON 'American Flag' dress! My heart literally skipped three beats when I found this rare beauty! I have never been fortunate enough to find an old Boy London piece until now! Whimsical American Flag print on this British gem. Hand painted red and white stripes on the skirt, and patriotic blue stars on the bodice. Corset-like hook-and-eye closures down the entire back. Stretch bodice, with ties that can either be worn as a halter, or tied through each of the two connected d-rings on the back. SIgnature 'Boy Boy' tag on the back. Looks amazing on, and is a true collectors gem! Would be perfect for Memorial Day, or 4th of July party! In great condition. Made in England. Marked Size Small Measurements: (has lots of stretch on the bodice) 30-34 inch bust 24-26 inch waist Free hips 37 inches from top back shoulder to hem
