Watermelon Slice | Vintage 1980s Sharon Young Boutique embroidered Watermelon patch Black & White Gingham 100% cotton Dress
Who doesn't love a watermelon!
We are always in search of fruity fun prints and though this is not a print per se, we love it even more for the way it incorporates the fresh, juicy, summer fruit!
2 slices for a perfectly juicy afternoon out eh ;)
This is a smashing vintage 1980s boutique-made calf-length dress in gorgeous 100% black/white gingham cotton. The watermelon collar is what gets us most excited of course!
It looks like it is separate pieces of fabric embroidered on to form the 2 slices of yummy red/green watermelon!
Has 2 ties extending from about 4in from each side so you could always cinch it tighter at the sides. Or just remove if you prefer a looser, hipster cut.
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.
