A Masterpiece of a Dress.

I love this vintage 1980s Dash-About sundress. It reminds me of Matisse. It's happy. And bold. The dress features an abstract floral design and has one side pocket. The sundress also has a built in bra and the straps have two button holes so the straps can be adjusted. The dress is unlined and the back panel is elasticized for stretch at bustline/back.

This listing is for the dress only. The belt is sold separately.

History/Backstory: A Vintage Virginia Find.

Label: Dash-About

Condition: Very Good. Original belt is MIA.

Material: Cotton or cotton blend. (No label, my best guess)

Care: No Label. I think hand wash or gentle wash is fine.

Made in USA


(All measurements are taken with the garment lying flat and all buttons buttoned, zippers zipped....you get the idea. Measurements are doubled where appropriate, i.e. for bust, waist, hips. Measurements are in inches. I still haven't mastered the metric system.)

Length: 36" (from top of dress to hem); 41' (from strap, first hole, to hem); 40" (from strap, second hole to hem)

Bust (from armpit to armpit): 28"

Waist: about 23" (elastic waistband)

Hips: 38" (free)

Colors: Wondrous White & Rockin' Red in a Flirty Floral.

Smoke free home.

Packaging: The dress will be carefully packaged and shipped via USPS Priority Mail.

Please convo if you prefer a different shipment method, like First Class, First Class International, etc.

I love to combine shipping. And I always refund postage overages.

The price quoted is for USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate.

Smoke free home.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look.

Here's the belt:
