Beautiful 60s vintage aqua coloured mini mod dress by Lee Cecil (predecessor label to Lee Bender at Bus Stop) with an attractive smocked front bodice and long sleeves. Unlined with a back zip fastening. We have had the dress dry cleaned after a long period in storage and there are a couple of minor flaws, including a smallish, barely noticeable blemish near the hem and a small shiny patch probably from a rather too-hot iron. These do not detract from wearability of this lovely dress which is priced accordingly and a perfect addition to the vintage collector’s wardrobe.

Customers are asked to bear in mind that vintage garment sizes bear little or no resemblance to contemporary sizes. Furthermore, current high street size labels are inconsistent, with M&S and Wallis being noted for their generous proportions while others come up on the small side.
Please always refer to the measurements provided in the item description rather than the garment label size, and note that any ‘best fit’ suggestion we make will be based on modern day sizing. By way of example, our own suggested standard size 12 dress has an underarm to underarm measurement of approximately 19" with a waist size of 30".
In order to best gauge the suitability of an item, you may find it useful to compare our stated measurements with those of one of your own garments which is a comfortable fit. Our garment measurements are taken with the item laid flat, and all sizes in our descriptions are approximate.
The following charts give approximate comparative UK/US/European sizes for women’s clothing and shoes.
