This vintage monochrome polka dot patterned dress is part of the Arkive Vintage Custom Collection. The sleeves have been removed, elastic put in the waist to add shape and the length has been shortened to bring the piece up to date.
The sleeveless dress features an alternating checkerboard pattern of black and white polkadots.
The collar and yolk are a solid black colour with one thick and one thin contrasting white stripe.
There are five 1960's decorative, square style buttons on the black placket.
The elastic at the waistband gives shape to the dress and also allows it to fit various sizes anywhere from a 60cm to 86cm waist and there are two belt loops at either side.
The skirt has knife pleats which gives it a lovely shape and fall.
The dress is fully lined with a black coloured, lightweight fabric which appears to be polyester.
The dress itself is constructed of fabric which has a light and linen-like appearance as you can see the texture in the weave. It appears to be cotton/polyester blend.
There is a very small patch on the left shoulder under the collar where the fabric appears to have worn thin. It is virtually unnoticeable (and cannot even be seen when zoomed in on the photo to the left) and doesn't detract from the dress at all.
This is a fab dress is a classic style in an on trend colour-way.
