Eileen | Vintage 1960s Navy blue pleated bust Easy midi day dress
We love our prints, but we also do love a good solid-coloured dress. Something that allows you to express through your accessories, or to experiment with makeup and shoes.
And shining through on this cutie are her buttons, like shining stars on the midnight sky, and the delicate pin-tucks on both sides of the bust. Not too many, and just right in thickness.
We have some gold brooches in our "Accessories" section in the shop, and we think they would go great with this.
Buttons up in the front. Elastic waist.
All measurements are taken with the garment laid flat.
Please DOUBLE the measurements provided to get the approximate circumference measurements.
Alternatively, you can take a piece of your own clothing, lay it flat, measure it and make a comparison.
