The label showed that it was an 80s C&A creation, a company who really did the "modern" twist on 50s shapes well amidst all the shoulder pads and power suits. It always seems to be a C&A dress whenever I find something in near perfect condition from the 70s or 80s, so that must say something about the level of quality in their production!
The dress is an absolute dream - it creates a soft tulip shape from the waist down which flutters as you walk, and I love the modest yet interesting neckline. It's a little tight around the bust for me, but I've sewn along the buttons in the hope that it'll keep the ladies contained. It's the perfect Summer dress for frolicking around in, and for a whole £6! As much as I love rummaging through rails of vintage, you sometimes cannot beat a charity shop bargain!
