Quintessential Swinging 60s in a dress that really wants to be taken to parties. Still --or again--looking modern, this is in a polyester lawn fully lined in black, a simple A-line shape with the interest all in the two-tone reversal of the dot print, and of course in those wonderful trumpet sleeves. There are loads of similar dresses out there, but nothing with the panache of this--thank you designer Sue Webb, of Pixie (of California). The size marking is illegible, but it's about a size 4.
Measurements: Bust 35", waist 28", hip 40", length 39", shoulder 15"
STORY: A dress that's absorbed into its seams the many parties Mary Frances wore it to.
