1970s Patchwork Print Floral Scooter Dress
A stylish, one-of-a-kind scooter dress from the sixties-seventies, crafted from a patchwork fabric featuring William Morris-style blooms.
Down the front and back rests a centre seam, while the back features a metal lapped zipper. This A-line piece has a clever dart that curves from the bust to the waist, creating a flattering shape. The neckline showcases a wide lapel and revere collar, foreseeing the dagger collar trend of later in the decade. This fun frock was likely handmade, and has an internal neck facing.
There are two small pulls but otherwise very good condition.
