This little dazzler comes to us straight from the 1950s. A day dress that's more than happy to make the transition to cocktails!

The adorable devil is in the details with this one. It's solidly constructed piece by the timeless Cornell band, closing with a side lapped metal zipper.
First we have the crisp cotton fabric in a mesmerising abstract print: swirls of chartreuse, rust, pink, and seafoam, edged in black agains a sophisticated grey background. Sleeveless, it features a sweetheart neckline with a wrap over shelf bust, and a destined waist panel. The drop waist leads to a glorious full skirt, ready to swish your way through whatever life throws at you.


A flawless piece of original vintage with no damage.
