DETAILS: A breezy comfortable vintage 1980s sundress elevated by the happy eye-popping print! The dress is simply styled with high waisted bodice with scooped neck. The skirt is gently gathered into the waist - there are sideseam inset pockets. The print shows a meticulously detailed scene, done Fauvist style. I love the little touch of using striped fabric to edge the deepcut armholes.

SIZE: Labeled size 6
Bust 36.5" (92.75cm)
Empire waist 32" (81.25cm)
Approximate hips 42" (106.5cm)
Bodice length from shoulder 11.5" (29cm)
Skirt length 24.5" (62cm)
Sweep 51" (129.5cm)

FABRIC/COLORS: Light weight rayon fabric with a dry hand. The print is amazing, bold and vibrant. Shoulder to hem, it's a complete landscape of a tropical waterfront village - I say tropical because of the palm trees. There are hills in the background and lots of brightly colored flags on shore and trimming the various sailboats on the water - you'll see a few fish in the water too. The upper half of the dress is the night sky complete with exploding fireworks. The primary color is a medium/dark blue - there's also a lot of light blue along with red, green, yellow and orange and brown - a very joyful and naive print.

TAGS: Carole Little Sport, made in Hong Kong.

CLOSURES: Opens completely down the front with eleven mother-of-pearl buttons and snaps at the neckline and waist.

CONDITION: No stains, holes, tears or other issues seen.
