Stunning vintage 70s sleeveless orange cocktail dress by John Charles with soft ruching to the shoulders, a V neckline and full sunray pleated skirt. The dress features a band around the empire line with a fixed front bow and long ties with silk tassels. The tassels have minor fraying to the ends, but this is only noticeable on close inspection and does not detract from the wearability of this gorgeous gown.

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.
