This little dress is so cool – straight out of the late sixties. It was tailor-made in a fabric that was really popular then – kind of loose-woven like hop sacking used to be. That’s what it was called, though it wasn’t really sacking material (from back when they used to make food sacks out of cloth).
It has a Peter Pan collar and zips up the back. The sleeves are made from a sheer material that is printed to match the heavier fabric of the dress. Cute!
When I find something like this that is SO characteristic of its particular time and even tells a story about who made it it’s almost like being transported! Beam me up . . . . . . . . .
