Stunning 80s polka dot dress with a round neckline, short sleeves with décor buttons and padded shoulders. The dress fastens at the nape with a single shiny black button and features a cut out keyhole detail below. Fitted to the waist, the dress has belt loops but the original belt is missing (belt shown is not included, but could be replaced with a black patent belt) and the skirt has a three layer back bustle detail and a back seam split. Fully lined and fabulous!

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.
