Penny Farthing | Vintage 1960s does 1920s gunne sax style Dress with triangle bib dickey
This evokes a feeling of spring in the 20s, but with a rather subtle, dark edge. Bibs are usually not modern, but this triangular front bustier piece is detacahable at the shoulders (you can see from the photos it can be detached from the lovely round cloth buttons on the shoulders which work well as a decoarative piece on their own).
The flirty tiers are just the right amount of girlish wonder without it going overboard and becoming overly "period drama".
Formal enough for a date with your other half, or a girl's day out with boots and a fringe bag. The front-piece has silve embroidered polka dots and the entire dress is filled with small heart-shaped dots.
*Hat, shoes and bag: Stylist's own.
