Clarice | Vintage 1980s slouchy loose-fit white and black gingham checkered dress with Big Black buttons
This style of vintage dress is really growing on us. The big buttons, one on each shoulder, and the lines that draw the eyes to slimming V, contrast with the checkered fabric cut on the diagonal to create a sense of movement, further enhanced by the full circle swing skirt.
Zips up at the back and the monochromatic black/white allows all the details to speak for themselves.
Pinned?: No. But it was belted to show how it wears when worn with one.
All measurements are taken with the garment laid flat.
