Summer Floral delight!

This is a 1960s/70s pretty floral maxi dress by Angela Gore, London label. In a 'Victorianna' style popular in the late 60s early 70s, which is also so wearable now, it would grace any Summer occasion. Perhaps even tripping to the shops with a straw basket?

It features

  • a fabric which is a semi sheer floral pattern on an off white backgroundtogether with ivory/cream fabric in a self coloured pattern (see photos) which mirrors the background pattern in the floral fabric
  • to the front bodice; a deep 2.5" waist panel in the floral fabric
  • a high stand up neck trimmed with 2 rows of lace,
  • full sleeves trimmed with 3 rows of lace down the length of the centre of the sleeve which is gathered into an elasticated cuff
  • a layered skirt: 
    • the bottom being a full skirt in the self coloured fabric with 4 rows of lace around the bottom
    • the top overlaid skirt (in the floral fabric) falls away in a curve from the centre of the front waist with the edges also trimmed in lace
  • long ties in the floral fabric from the side waist panel which tie at the back
  • a full lining to skirt, bodice and sleeves
  • an original metal long back zip from the neck to below the waist, hook and eye at base of collar
  • fabric which is either cotton or a poly/cotton mix. As there is no fabric label I cannot be definitive as to the fabric. The lining is probabaly acetate. The sleeve lining is a fine sheer nylon. The dress has been and can be hand washed with care despite the label stating dry clean.

The dress is in excellent condition
