Falling Petals | Vintage 1960s 1970s embroidered Floral and Scallop details Sun Dress
It's not bright. It doesn't scream. But it still makes an entrance.
A silhouette so simple. There's something delicate about the combination of the grey khaki and the dark navy blue. Just 2 colours. Nothing else. But such beauty.
The bust area is trimmed with a pretty slim lace trim and it seems someone has extended the length of the straps with a matching navy-blue fabric. But it doesn't seem odd or out of place at all. It all seems to just flow together.
Closes with a back zip.
Pinned?: No. But it was belted to show how it looks when worn with one.
