"Polkadots & Pleats" Vintage 1960's Red & White Polkadot Pleated Dress UK 8 US 4


Made in the most iconic pattern, this original 1960's cotton dress in red and white polkadots accented by mock rhinestone buttons and gathered pleated details, is just the piece for your seasonal wardrobe. 

The rounded neckline of the dress is framed by a panelled border, which draws the eye to the central mock button fastenings along the centre front of the bodice, rendered in silver claw set rhinestones. The elegant wide balloon style sleeves boast a mid-length  cut and are finished with slim cuffs which can be fastened together with cufflinks. The line of the bodice, draws the eye to the cinched in waistline, front which gathered micro pleats drape along the hipline and along the length of the skirt-line, setting off the flowing cut of the dress. 

This dress is made of fine cotton and has an element of sheerness to it. You may wish to wear it with a slip to conceal your modesty.
