Sunshine in the Park | Vintage 1950s handmade mid-century Drop waist dress
Scouted this out during my time in Sydney. Everyday I would take the bus which passed by the stretch of Newtown and try my best to peer inside all those gorgeous shops. When my friends came to visit, we would go vintage shopping! That was a dangerous time for the pocket!
This lovely long dress must have made someone really happy. With a gorgeous drop waist that is reminiscent of the 1920s, the flared longer skirt makes it easy to wear.
