1980s Pastel Rainbow Candy Stripe Dress
This is a very early 1980s dress which is borrowing some of the style of the late 70s, and was made in West Germany.
It has a pastel stripe satin with a silver lurex thread running between the stripes. Dress tailoring includes a racer style bodice and a mandarin style collar with ruffles coming down across the front of bodice, running asymmetrically down the left leg. We can absolutely see Debbie Harry in this!
When we first photographed this on Miss Pippa, we didn't realise it had been taken up to make it look like a mini dress, and this has since been restored by our seamstresses to make it full length again, though it does mean that the lining is shorter.
It is fully lined with a back zip fastening.
Excellent condition, has some alterations as described above.
