This is an amazing dress, vintage 1980′s bestowing on the wearer the illusion of a tiny waist adorned with black embroidery. The skirt has peplum detailing just below the waist. The way the dress folds around the bust gives a lovely shape to the whole piece. The bust ripples out into classic 80′s batwing sleeves. The back of the waistline is elasticated. The colour is a fabulous shade of jade green. The condition is perfect with absolutely no damage what so over. A really unique one of a kind dress.

This is a beautifully elegant dress which dates from the time when the much loved Princess Diana was known as Lady Di and this dress could have been worn by the lady herself. It is a perfect little polka dot wrap dress which moves beautifully. It has a lovely shape to it because of the clever folding and draping of the material. The dress is a size 14 but would fit larger as it closes simply with two buttons at an elasticated waist and the bust and hips have plenty of material. This would be a lovely occasion dress perhaps for a wedding. It is truly one of a kind.

If you are a fan of classic 80′s style then this is the suit for you! I could so see this on Cyndi Lauper! This suit has it all, shoulder pads, big sleeves, gilt buttons and it is in remarkable condition, if it was worn it was only a few times. Both skirt and jacket are fully lined and someone has taken the lining up on the skirt a little, it must have been hanging down.
This could be worn so many ways together or separately so you could make tons of use of this classic piece.
