This fine needlecord cotton smocked dress was made in a time when attention to detail was everything. I could not resist this very special piece as the dressmaker's smocking was particularly outstanding, not surprisingly as it turned out that she was a dressmaker to some of the Royal Family.
For a classic British vintage garment that captures the quality of a time lost to fast fashion this dress is a very beautiful example of the perfection hand dressmaking offered.
In a perfect powder blue with contrasting blue and white detailing it has a deep hem and a tie to the back.
