An iconic Mod flower-power print, with sheer sleeves at the same time! The dress material is a loosely-woven stuff that they used to call “hop sacking” in the mid-Sixties (but, of course, not real hop sacking, which is a different thing – sort of like the sugar and flour bag material that women used to make shirts and dresses from on the farms WAY long ago).
It fits Stella in a way that’s too short and tight to look the way it is supposed to, and would do better on a model a little bit smaller and not quite so tall. But, anyway, oh so cute and DEFINITELY from about 1966. Notice the Peter Pan collar.
