I love dinosaurs and I love vintage repro, so when I saw that Lindy Bop had pretty much created my dream dress I was over the moon! Cute print? Check! Adorable collar? Check! Prehistoric pin-ups? Triple check!
One of many new, fun prints in this season, this dino dream is made from a lovely matte fabric which has plenty of stretch to it. With the deep fitted underbust waistband and wide flared skirt, the shape is typically 50s but with a frivolous print. I always size up by one with Lindy Bop dresses as I find them a little small on the bust, but I actually think that between the large shoulders and stretchy nature of this design, I could have brought it true to size.
The fabric is brilliantly ludicrous, and I love it. From a distance it could be a stunning modern art print, but then you get close enough, and nope - it's a menagerie of dinosaurs, volcanoes and blonde babes. I teamed it with a dinosaur / comet necklace which was a gift from one of my lovely sister in laws, and an item which at the time of writing, I've been complimented on every single time I've worn it.
