Gorgeous vintage 1960s 1970s sleeveless dress made of, I believe, cotton crocheting yarn. It is fully lined in what feels like raw silk. I've compared it to items that I have which are raw silk and it feels the same though I'm not going to swear my life on it :)
There are two labels but I'm not sure which is the correct one and not sure why there are two either ?? One says: Simon Ellis London and the other says: Peter Robinson. Whichever one it is, this definitely has all the tell tale signs of a professionally made item.
Does up with a back zip which is all in tact and fully functional albeit a bit stiff.
There is some fraying to the crochet in places along the hem line which could be easily resolved by tucking it under and resewing along the hem. To be honest though it isn't that visible when it's on due to the fact that it is crochet and is lined.
There is a minor repair to what looks like were some loose threads which is at the edge where the collar meets the dress (really not visible but thought I'd mention it) and one section of the pattern where the detail has come undone and has been mended to blend it in. See photo 6 for detail of this. It's at the back on the right but again, this isn't that noticeable unless you know that it's there and are looking for it.
In my opinion, it doesn't detract from the overall loveliness of the dress.
Measurements are approximate and are taken with the garment lying flat:
Underarm to Underarm: 17.5 inches or 44.5 cm
Waist: 15 inches or just over 38 cm
Length from Bottom of Collar or Neck to Hem: 52 inches
I recommend that this would best suit a UK 8 although would also fit a UK 6 just a bit more flowingly. The model is a UK 8 with 32C bra size BUT please go by measurements and compare with an item of your own which fits you well and measure on one side with it laid flat as there are no returns sorry.
A really gorgeous and unusual dress.
Please see photos for details.
