Plainly Janely | Vintage 1980s does historical Puritans Wide lace collar Black slim fit dress
We thought one of our favourite vintage brands, Lanz Originals, mostly made happy sundresses with fabulous prints in the 80s. But they actually started out making dirndl and ethnic Austrian traditional folk dresses.
And perhaps this is a more modern version of their original designs!
This is beautifully made with its wide, exaggerated white, lace-tipped double-layered collar - a modern twist on the 1800s puritans, Amish look.
There is a detachable (attached by 2 buttons) triangular middle piece that is placed in the middle of the cleavage area so you could possible remove it and wear something else inside. Or when you want to wear it as it is, just re-attach the piece !
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.
