This is the most incredible vintage dress dating from the late sixties/early seventies by a label called Belart who made beautiful quality childrenswear. A dress that we as adults wouldn't say no to, the lacework is incredible, the belt sensational, contrasting against the black velvet skirt. The velvet skirt has a tiny bald mark halfway down the front which is not really visible at all when on as it pleats, and particularly as this is just such an impactful piece with so much detail to look at.
We have just one dress like this, it came from a lady who had kept all of her daughter's dresses in the hope she would have granddaughters but had lots of grandsons!
The girl in the picture is a tall slim age 7
