A gorgeous mod style dress from the 60s in a beautiful turquoise colour with a cream lace trim.
It has a high neckline and long sleeves also trimmed with lace at the cuffs. It would look fantastic worn with coloured tights and Mary Jane shoes for that 60s Mod look epitomised by Mary Quant and made popular by the "Youthquake" movement at the time in Swinging London. It would also be a great little dress for the evening before a wedding as "Something Blue".
The dress closes with a metal zip at the back and one snap fastener to conceal the zip. The cuffs close with a single snap fastener on each cuff. There are bust darts and pleat detail on the sleeves.
