Great 1960s purple mini shift dress with a wild flower print designed by the late great British artist Pat Albeck. A classic 60s shift cut, the fabric skims your curves without being too tight. The splits at the side to ease walking are finished with simple fabric bows, and the boat neckline is sophisticated without appearing dated. Very stylish and fun, finish off with heels and a bag to pick out some of the brighter colours in the print for a perfect outfit.

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


• Lilac floral fabric with deep purple, yellow and blue flowers with green leaves. I strongly believe that this print was designed by British artist Pat Albeck, who worked closely with Sambo and Dolly Rockers at the time and created many famous textiles.
• The dress looks as if it is faded and has foxing spots, however it appears that it is in fact the fabric as the fade stops at the central back seam, and the spotting is visible on the inside also. Please be aware this is not a fault, ans is the nature of the fabric.
• Split to both side seams, with matching fabric bow decoration
• Wide boat neck and long side darts from the waist for fit
• Sleeveless
• Fastens with a metal zip to the back, Aero brand, with a hook and loop
• Made from a light weight cotton
• Unlined
• Sambo label to the back


There is a very slight lightening under the arms, shown in the photos
