"Sky Blue Florals" Vintage 1970's Sky Blue Floral Print Dress UK 8 US 4


This spectacular 1970's sky blue cotton voile dress, accented by a pattern of clusters of flowers in vibrant shades of yellow, pink, orange, white and green, constructed with the most incredible and mesmerising design is a rare piece to behold and a firm favourite here.

The cross-over V shaped neckline is framed by a rolled cotton edge, which sets off the delicate quilted stitch detail panels along each side of the shoulder lines and yokes, this is continued along the nape of the dress in a rounded panel. The elegant shoulder line, sets off the full length sleeves, which boast small gathered pleats along the top of each shoulder seam, creating a gentle puffed detail, contrasting the fitted cut of the top of the sleeves, which drape into wonderfully wide balloon cuts, which draw in along the rolled edge cuff with a simple button and loop. The fitted bodice, boasts a cross over design along the décolletage, which draws the eye to the fitted waist-panel. The waist is accented by a matching fabric ribbon tie, which can be worn tied to the front or the the back of the dress. The elegant line of the skirt, is accented by gathered pleats that drape from the waist-panel along the length of the dress.  This dress is lined in cream rayon along the skirt and a second layer of cotton along the bodice.
