Fabulously complimentary lilac and sage green big floral print 1950s sleeveless dress, with a wide sash tie belt to create wonderfully dramatic bows at the back. This dress is perfect for summer with the scoop neckline and sleeveless bodice, the full skirt can easily accommodate a petticoat under should you wish. The colours are wonderful if you prefer less girly hues, with the sage and lilac complimenting each other nicely and would suit brown and tan accessories, perhaps a nice wicker bag for a picnic vibe (we have quite a few for sale!)

We advise paying close attention to the actual measurements of the garment. Please get in touch if you have any questions.

There is a darned hole on the back of the waist, but this is hidden underneath the belt when it is tied up. There is a mend above the zip under the arm. There is a small pull to one seam on the back of the shoulder, and one to the waist. These are not bad, nor do they affect the stability of the dress, but worth mentioning. All shown in photos.
