Wonderful sun dress made by Esprit in the 1980's that evokes the mexican cotton sundresses just like this from the 1930's. I used to have one from the 30's that was exactly like this but yellow and this one is such a lovely imitation and the perfect little summer dress. It is made of a white gauze cotton with floral embroidery on the chest as well as a little red string tie at the top and three lines colored stitching around the loose elastic drop waist ( the bottom line is a mustard yellow color and from washing it has caused a slight yellow coloration around the that elastic wist part, but it is very light and also looks like it could just be aged yellowing...it is very minor thought I would say and you can see in the pics it really is a minor thing compared to overall dress but I have reduced the cost to account for this.) Thanks so much for looking!

*******Make sure you love the item and have looked at all of the measurements as I do not take returns unless the item has been grossly mis-described. These are vintage pieces and will always have some wear unless they are virgin vintage (aka never been worn) so keep that in mind when buying as all vintage stores I know of do not take returns and all sales are final. I will not consider taking anything back if it was purchased more than 30 days ago. So please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have before purchasing. I answer very promptly. Thanks for looking!

*** I look over each Item I sell and list the flaws that I find, but I am human and on occasion may miss something. Please contact me before leaving feedback, if this is the case. Thanks so much!

Sizing Tips~

For your reference: I model almost everything (the redhead in photos) and I am 5'6", 126 lbs, 32" bust with a B cup, 27" waist, 37" hips (that's measured at their very widest point). I USUALLY wear a modern U.S. Size 6 or Small, although I tend to wear a size 4 up top but U.S. sizing varies widely, so this depends on the designer.

What I consider a size "small" in my shop is something that fits me very well. Clothes are not pinned to me. I do model all sizes, so please note that this means that some items are too small or too large on me in "real life". I will make note if something is extra small on me as well as if something is loose and too large for me.

Please go by my detailed clothing measurements to assure a proper fit for yourself, and if you have any specific sizing questions, or any other questions at all, I am super friendly so just shoot me a message! I love to help and to answer questions!!

I properly package and label the goods in accordance with international regulations; however, I cannot be responsible for any unexpected delays or fees incurred by Customs.
*** My prices internationally on shipping sometimes are high as prices have gone up at USPS due to gas/fuel cost. Usually to western Europe, Canada and Mexico it is relatively still pretty low, but due to high cost to eastern and northern Europe, Japan and Australia for the (everywhere else) shipping entry I go for the highest to account for those other places mentioned as I have recently lost a chuck of money due to high shipping cost to those particular places I have mentioned. If I overcharge by at least $2.00 I will refund that back to you ASAP and if you want to know exact shipping to where you are, shoot me a convo and I will give you the exact price to your country and we can change the shipping before your purchase. I really want to accommodate my international customers and keep cost as low as possible for you, so please feel free to ask me anything, I am here to help!
