Vintage Spotted Sun Dress

A magnificent find at the op shop, even if I say so myself!

I was pecking around for a colourful girly dress. It will be for an upcoming trip to Singapore where it's hot hot hot!

Narrowed it down to two dresses, one from Dotti and one vintage.

Put them side by side and examined for faults. Found a hole in the Dotti dress and was missing it's belt. The vintage dress looked like a hospital gown. Both went back on the rack.

Disheartened, I scoured the dresses one more time in case I overlooked any gems.

Lo and behold, I found a pretty sundress and best of all, it was vintage! Could'nt believe my luck. The dress is made of heavy duty cotton and is well constructed. It stood against the test of time, especially compared to the Dotti dress.

I could tell it was vintage by the pattern and fabric. It has an old skool silver zipper. It was smocked at the back.

You could imagine Charlotte from Sex And The City wearing it.

Very pleased to have found a vintage dress which was'nt grandma-esque for $3 AUD!
