The detailing on this dress is really amazing! It dates from the late 1950s, possibly early 1960s, and is made in Bangkok, Thailand! The print is an almost Art Nouveau one in shades of blue and white, and the dress is finished with an amazingly detailed trim in toning black and white. A detail I particularly love is the matching belt - made of the same black and white rouleau cotton. Lovely flared skirt, too!

dress has a back metal zipper and hook and eye at the top. The back of the belt has a clever detail with worked thread tab and press stud so that the belt doesn't slip around, but doesn't have to be put through visible belt loops. The skirt has many, many gores to give a gorgeous flared shape -- 20 in total! Such a lot of work has gone into this dress!

Label: Siam Boutique, Bangkok, Thailand - 100% Cotton, made in Thailand. 40.

Size: A UK 14-16, US 10-12

Bust: up to 40"
Waist: 32"
Hip: up to 44"
Length: 44" mid shoulder to hem

Condition: Excellent. No stains or flaws to the dress except an almost invisible mend to the seam at the bottom of the zip. If you look closely, you can see that the print varies slightly - but this is how the dress was made, and it looks great! There is also a little yellowing to some of the white cotton on the belt, but only if you look very carefully.
