1960s Betty Barclay Daisy Dress
Flower power, but make it fashion. This original 1960s day dress from Betty Barclay Frocks is enchanting. We can't get enough of this Orla Keily-esque print. Sunflowers, daisies, and a big dose of sunshine. This dress will carry you just about anywhere, but she's partial to a garden party or a summer wedding.
The pretty details on this piece really elevate it. The Rayon crepe fabric has a delicious swish, and the knife pleated skirt makes sleek work of the full, floaty skirt. That soft boat neckline is endlessly flattering, as are the soft floaty sleeves.
This listing is for the dress only: in the modelled photographs, we've styled this dress with a separate belt. We've also added a petticoat for extra floof: it's not included, but you can find our petticoat selection here.
Presents beautifully. Previously had darts to rear of bodice which have been unpicked. The dress is unlined.
