True vintage, late 1950's St Michael (Marks & Spencer) button back dress in the softest floral print fabric. A beautiful dress for summer.

Created from Marspun fabric, a spun viscose,... here's a snippet from the M&S website:
"We took a man-made fabric we had created during the war and made it into a popular line of dresses influenced by Parisian designers. This fabric was known as Utility Schedule 1005 in wartime, but was now renamed Marspun."

Best fit: UK 14 or small 16 - check the waist size.
Dress measured in inches:
Bust: 38/40"
Waist: 30"
Hips: 46"
Length: 43" (the hem has been taken up by a few inches but the original hem finish is there so it could easily be taken down again)

Shown on my size 14 mannequin, which has a 39" bust.

Condition: Very good, clean condition. Minor fray to neck interface (unseen when on) and about one inch of fray to sleeve seam (just needs a few stitches). Belt loops but no belt.

All vintage items have been pre-used, unless stated otherwise, and may have gentle signs of wear.
