This flattering Opus dress has some age to, though not quite as far back at the 40's style it has! It has no labels so I'm going with a reserved 70's / 80's.

This dress has a floral print of violet, golds and black on white.

Semi-fitted bodice with a wide, cross-over collar that goes down to the waistband.

Short sleeves.

Elasticated waist band (this sits very low at the back on the mannequin purely because it isn't 'filled'! On a person, it will sit lower but not as dramatically).

A-line skirt that is pleated from the waistband.

No fastening and material label!

Marked a size 14 but shown here as very loose on a 16/18 mannequin. I would recommend for a 20 or 22 for a 40's more structured fit. This will fill the waist but still allow the looser fit to the bust. If, however, you prefer the loose flowing 70s style then it will work for a smaller size.

Bust- 48" (but cut to sit loose). Waist- 38" - 40". Hips- Free.

Length from underarm- 38.5".

Preloved but in excellent condition.
