St Michael Early 1950s Tea Dress  - A Piece of History!


You are bidding on a wonderful 1950s tea dress from St Michael (Marks and Spencer).  It is a lovely light blue colour with pink/purple flower design.  The measurements can be found in the item specifics.  


What makes this dress truly amazing is its history.  It is made from 'Marspun' - a fabric designed by Marks and Spencer during the war period which could be used for 'utility' clothing.  Once the war had ended, the Marspun fabric was made into a series of clothing lines - most notably a selection of dresses based on design house garments.



"Marks & Spencers’ wartime fabric, called ‘Utility Schedule 1005’, was now renamed Marspun and made into a popular line of dresses".

On a practical note, this dress is in very good vintage condition. No holes or stains, with only one tiny bit of fraying to the neckline that I can see. Features a zip fastening to the side and belt loops (belt not included).  Also features an integral side pocket.  Four original buttons to the front fastening.


The dress is gently gathered to the waist line and drops into a semi-full skirt.


This is a beauty and this is reflected in the start price and Buy It Now Price.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
