Gals, it would be hard to find a more iconic 1950s frock than this stunner. And from the classic Horrockses label, the print design and silhouette are simply superb. In a crisp cotton, a white background is scattered with charming coral pink watercolour effect stemmed roses, their lovely hue repeated in the sweetheart shaped neckline insert. And the silhouette is every bit as enchanting- the short sleeve bodice is closely fitted with waist darts front and back, with the front panels cut on the bias for an even closer fit; below, the skirt is extravagantly full and delicately gathered into the nipped in waist. A truly wonderful, high quality frock so indicative of the era, this little gem is all set to pair up with those white stilettos for a vintage inspired event or rockabilly weekender, or be marvellously attired for a wedding or garden party in this irresistible original dress.
