Step back in time to the iconic 1960s with our stunning yellow Linen-Look dress by Renval! This adorable piece captures the essence of the very early era's fashion.

Cheery yellow, this frock radiates sunshine wherever you go. Its linen-inspired texture adds a touch of vintage charm, while the standout feature steals the show: a statement white bow adorned with delightful yellow polka dots, elegantly gracing the neckline. 

The dress boasts a button-through front, fastened by generously-sized white marbled lucite buttons. Tucked beneath the collar, a hidden snap stud ensures a secure fit for the marvellous bow to remain in place. Speaking of the collar; the wide boat neck design with its deep front and center notch adds a touch of drama, and the empire bustline is universally flattering.

Function meets style with two conveniently placed slip pockets at the front – perfect for a touch of practicality without compromising the dress's aesthetic. These pockets are MASSIVE. And yes, you can fit a full size smart phone in comfortably, with one left over for snacks. (We all know Mrs D loves to refer to her pockets as 'snack holes').

The short cap sleeves evoke a sense of playfulness, making this dress perfect for a casual daytime outing or chic for day occasion wear to a wedding, garden party or races. 

Crafted by the brand Renval, this dress carries a piece of fashion history within its threads. The original labels stay in place, a testament to the authenticity and quality of its design.

Also, please enjoy a bonus appearance from Mrs D's rescue dog, Miss Daisy. #VVDog

Note from Mrs D

There is a belt detail to the back of this dress which has snap studs to fasten but these have been sewn down to make the waist smaller (hence why it looks a little neat on our model in this area). We have restored these to the original position to allow more room on the waist but these can be easily altered/moved again.


There is a tiny indent on the back belt where the sewn-down snap was. It is barely noticeable and will most likely rectify after first wear and wash. Otherwise perfect vintage condition.
