MUST HAVE! | Connie | Vintage 1950s 1960s Cotton-mix Cornflower blue Tulip pattern lace embroidery cut-out Elastic waist Dress
We often see some cut-out embroidery/lace elements at the neckline or the hem. But we seldom see them on both.
And such a lovely pattern too - tendrils of plants and hanging tulips. It gives the feeling of these flowers lovingly growing into the prettiest cornflower blue of this cutie. We also love the scalloped hems of course ;) And the cuffs are buttoned with slight elastic give so it's rather comfy to wear.
This dress came with a dry-cleaning tag written in Japanese. We wonder if it was one of those lost souls in the laundry-system of eons past. Lends it a touch of nostalgia, doesn't it?
Has small shoulder pads which can be easily removed if you prefer not to have them.
