This red and white striped nautical style 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 lightweight, sheer fabric features a red and white, graduated stripe pattern.
It has a lovely boatneck detail and there is a patch pocket on the left chest, secured with a cute red button.
The elastic at the waistband gives shape to the dress and also allows it to fit various sizes anywhere from a 62cm to 80cm waist.
The skirt has knife pleats which gives it a lovely shape and fall.
The skirt is lined with an off white lightweight fabric which appears to be polyester.
The dress itself appears to be cotton/polyester blend.
There is a concealed, red zip opening at the centre back of the dress.
This dress has great shape and would look flattering on most body sizes. Layer up with a fitted cardigan and pumps for a 50's chic or with a denim jacket and ankle boots for smooth style.
