Sweet Disorder Vintage

1980s Broderie Cotton Midi Dress


Angelic 1980s midi dress made from gorgeous figural broderie anglaise in a pretty bird pattern. I adore the dramatic angel sleeves and tiered handkerchief hem. Soft silhouette with a gently gathered empire waist and dainty sweetheart neckline. A really luxurious take on a white cotton dress with excellent tailoring and quality.  Little shoulder pads support the sleeves, the skirt is two layers of fabric and the bodice is fully lined. Fabric is a super luxe cotton, soft, smooth to the touch and a thick luxurious weight. Such an ethereal beauty and so wearable too!
