Caramel Mel | Vintage 1950s 1960s Mustard yellow and white polka dot textured fabric Puff sleeve Day Dress
This pretty mustard yellow dress reminds us of caramel centres in delicate little chocolate pralines. All goey and sweet with those beautifully delicate strands of sticky goodness. Mmmmmm.
Add a few white marshmallows, a good cup of coffee (or hot chocolate, whichever is your poison ;) and it's such comfort for a rainy day (or even for a sunny one!)
The fabric on this is fabulously textured, lends it a bit of an oomph. Also loving the cutest little details at the shoulders and the slightly-puffed sleeves.
All measurements are taken with the garment laid flat.
Please DOUBLE the measurements provided to get the approximate circumference measurements.
